Modular Framework for Evolutionary Implementation of Shop-Floor Control

Objective

The objective of this project is to develop an integrated shop-floor control system, incorporating online factory data-collection equipment and an appropriate Shop-Floor Communication Network (SFCN).

The system will consist of:

- a shop-floor communication network
- an application generator for data collection and the man-machine interface
- a modelling language for scheduling and dispatching operations
- a shop-floor database management system.

Integrated application software will be developed for shop-floor scheduling, shop-floor monitoring, quality assurance and maintenance management.

The major advances over existing systems will be modularity, low-cost implementation, user-friendliness, online interaction, reliability, and a standardised approach to shop-floor data collection.

Prototypes will be implemented and evaluated in three industrial production facilities.
