    To achieve the flexibility required by the small amount of repeated work in some industries, automated systems should be capable of being reprogrammed quickly and efficiently. One way of doing this is to create software dedicated to the task of generating the required code. Using Object-Oriented Programming techniques, a software engineer can write efficient code for machines that is faster to implement and extendable. This paper gives a brief overview of object-oriented programming and then goes on to discuss research into the use of that technique to create programs to generate code for a mobile welding robot in the shipbuilding industry.
