Distributed Control Architectures for Adaptive Production Systems
Sprache des Vortragstitels:
Manufacturing companies face major challenges as product life-cycles shorten, product variability increases and global markets become more volatile. To remain competitive, production facilities and equipment must be more adaptable to respond quickly and efficiently to these changes. A key success factor in achieving these goals is the control and automation infrastructure. New distributed architectures are seen as a possible approach to meet these requirements. This requires new interaction and communication patterns as well as new ways of programming automation systems consisting of networked control devices.
This talk shows how products and production cells can be decoupled for producing different products on changing production setups, what impact this induces to control software and communication architectures and how modern software and communication architectures can reduce engineering and operation complexity.
