Service-oriented Information Model for the Model-Driven Control of Dynamically Interconnected Assembly Systems
Classical, statically linked production systems are increasingly reaching their limits due to changing requirements, such as the production of customer-specific products up to lot size 1. Dynamically interconnected assembly systems offer a possibility for customized production, which can also react quickly to changing environments. An essential component of systems designed in this way is the matching between the requirements of a product and the capabilities of all existing and potential assembly resources. This paper therefore describes the product- and resource-side modeling that the components of the assembly system involved need as a basis for decision-making. In addition, it outlines the provision of information as well as the communication of the system components.
