Evolvable production systems: An integrated view on recent developments
2010 (English)In: Proceedings of the 6th CIRP-Sponsored International Conference on Digital Enterprise Technology / [ed] George Q. Huang, K. L. Mak and Paul G. Maropoulos, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2010, 841-854 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)Text
Evolvable Production Systems (EPS) is a fundamentally new paradigm to design, maintain and evolve industrial systems. It is a holistic approach supporting product/shop floor co-evolution and ensuring a tailored and balanced solution for sustainable enterprise development. Its core is engineered by distributed intelligence materialized in proactive and interacting shop floor assets. These intelligent building blocks include a wise interface design that ensures plug-ability and promotes system integration and bio-inspired interaction mechanisms (control and monitoring/diagnosis) to emerge a consistent self-organizing response to production disturbances. In this article a short survey on recent technical and theoretical developments supporting the EPS paradigm is held.
