Operational characterization of evolvable productionsystems
2012 (English)In: 4th CIRP Conference on Assembly Technologies and Systems – CATS 2012, 2012, 85-90 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
On the way to achieve mass customization production systems have to obtain the capability of rapid reconfiguration of not only physical components but also from control point of view. Evolvable Production System targets highly adaptable mechanical and control solutions that can enhance reusability and interoperability of modules, enabling lifetime extension of the modules. The focus of EPS paradigm is to achieve overall system adaptability by autonomous modules which are dedicated to specific processes with the capability of short deployment time at shop floor without reprogramming effort. From the operational point of view EPS brings significant enhancements considering shop floor dynamics and performances therefore positioning of EPS principles and approaches in production system typology from different perspectives is essential. This has been done by two means which are process flow structure and customer order decoupling point location.
