Closed-loop Production and Automation Schedule Execution in RMSs under Uncertain Environmental Conditions

In , 2012

Highly automated production systems are conceived to efficiently handle evolving production requirements. This concerns any level of the system from the configuration and control to the management of production. The proposed work deals with the development of an innovative platform jointly managing the production scheduling level and the automation level. The major advantage coming from the platform is the capacity of generating scheduling plans which are executed at automation level and concurrently monitored over time so that any production anomaly or system misbehavior can be dynamically interpreted and adapted by regenerating online a new schedule. The paper describes the current release of our closed loop architecture that integrated both control and automation parts.
