%X This paper describes and compares five CSP based and two CSP
   related process\-oriented motion control system
   implementations that are made for our Production Cell
   demonstration setup. Five implementations
   are software\-based and two are FPGA hardware\-based. All
   implementations were originally made with different purposes
   and investigating different areas of the design space for
   embedded control software resulting in an interesting
   comparison between approaches, tools and software and
   hardware implementations. Common for all implementations is
   the usage of a model\-driven design method, a communicating
   process structure, the combination of discrete event and
   continuous time and that real\-time behaviour is essential.
   This paper shows that many small decisions made during the
   design of all these embedded control software
   implementations influence our route through the design
   space for the same setup, resulting in seven different
   solutions with different key properties. None of the
   implementations is perfect, but they give us valuable
   information for future improvements of our design methods
   and tools.
