German term or phrase: automation control terms
"Bei Lieferung der Anlagen wird folgende Dokumentation in jeweiliger Landessprache gefordert:
Anweisungsliste mit Querverweisliste, Kontaktplan, Ablaufplan und Logikplan, Bedienungsanleitung Grundparameter, Programmdiskette mit Symbolik, Programmieranleitung, Im Detail noch zu klären."

This is for a hardening furnace with Siemens S7-400 control system.

Is Anweisungsliste a statment list, and what is a Logikplan, and Symbolik?

Any help with any of these terms in that passage is much appreciated.

Explanation:
Anwesiungsliste = instructions list, statement list
Logikplan = functional block diagram
Kontaktplan = ladder logic diagram (contact diagram)
Symbolik = symbols (ie, table or list of symbols used in diagrams)

statement list, algorithm, symbols


Explanation:
I completely agree with your assessment of "statement list". For Logikplan I suggest "algorithm" as this seems to fit into a programming context. As for Symbolik, that could refer to "images" (Symbolik usually means imagery).

Cheerio,
Dierk

statement list, logic sequence diagram [flow chart], symbology


Explanation:
While the Siemens FWB Energie- und Automatisierungstechnik does not list a Logikplan, it does list a Logikablaufplan, and Logikplan suggests to me some sort of flow chart anyway. See if these terms help you out:

Logikablaufplan m
logic sequence diagram, logic flow chart

Symbolik, Relais-Symbolik f
relay symbology

Ablaufplan m (Flußdiagramm)
flow diagram, flowchart n
Ablaufplan (NC)
planning sheet
Ablaufplan (QS)
process plan
Ablaufplan
flowchart n

Anweisungsliste f (AWL) (SPS)
statement list (STL)

HTH!
