The present level of the organization of industrial production implies an integrated approach to process control with full coverage of all the elements of a unified automated system of optimal control. Such a control system has to create by combining existing local management systems, which leads to a problem, because it is a very laborious task . A similar problem also occurs when you include in the functioning of the process new technological devices and systems that have built-in autonomous control systems that is becoming common practice for manufacturers of process equipment. Solution to this problem could be the creation of decentralized control systems with a hierarchical structural organization , in terms of effective processes class of complex technological systems (CTS). Multi-element technological processes with complex structure  include in CTS, typical for large industrial facilities, completed production or manufacturing units.
