A Class of Conflict Free Petri Nets Used for Controlling Manufacturing Systems
This paper is devoted to the behavior, evaluation and management of non-cyclic discrete systems in general and manufacturing systems in particular. We introduce a special type of Petri nets called CFIOs (Conflict-Free nets ...
Implementation of Rule Based Information Systems for Integrated Manufacturing
This paper focuses on the development of a methodology within a software environment for automating the rule based implementation of specifications of integrated manufacturing information systems. The specifications are ...
UPN: A Petri Net Based Graphical Representation of Company Policy Specifications in CIM
A graphical representation schema - Updated Petri Nets (UPN) - has been developed to model rule based company policy specifications, in the context of computer integrated manufacturing systems. UPN facilitates the modeling ...
INformation Systems for Integrated Manufacturing (INSIM)
A mechanism with the potential to control the information flow among all of the manufacturing application systems, in order to streamline factory activities, based on company-specific and company-wide policies and procedures ...
Hierarchical Modeling Approach for Production Planning
Production management problems are complex owing to large dimensionality, wide variety of decisions of varying scope, focus and time-horizon, and disturbances. A hierarchical approach to these problems is a way to address ...
Some Open Problems in the Design and Use of Modern Production Systems
During the past two decades, manufacturing systems have moved towards automation, integration and modularity. These trends will certainly continue in the future due to the constraints of the market and to evolution of the ...
