In large-scale industrial plants, the process control system has multiple system servers to provide seamless services to plant operators irrespective of any system server's failure. In this paper, we present an autonomic connection scheme between the system server and the Human-Machine Interface application (HMI) without additional configuration. The proposed scheme is based on the concept of autonomic computing, supporting the fault-tolerant and/or load-balancing features. Finally, the mathematical analysis shows that the proposed scheme can provide high availability of services to users.
