Abstract [en]

Purpose – Evolvable production systems enable fully reconfiguration capabilities on the shop floor through process-oriented modularity and multiagent-based distributed control. To be able to benefit architectural and operational characteristics of evolvable systems, there is a need of a newplanning approach which links shop floor characteristics and planning operations. This paper seeks to address these issues.

Design/methodology/approach – Evolvable production system has a structured methodology in itself. Consistent to this, a reference planningarchitecture is developed aiming to achieve agility on planning activities. Besides a workload control method is proposed and implemented as a part ofthe planning architecture.

Findings – First applications of evolvable systems have been implemented through European research projects. Shop floor working principles andarchitectural characteristics are consistent to facilitate more agility on planning activities which are framed at a planning reference architecture calleddemand responsive planning. As an implementation case, an agent-based workload control method is proposed and implemented. The characteristicsof EPS and proposed planning architecture enable continuous and dynamic workload control of the shop floor to be implemented.

Originality/value – This paper presents a new planning model compatible with evolvable production systems targeting to agility to demand onplanning and control activities benefiting shop floor enhancements of a fully reconfigurable system which enables to relax constraints imposed fromproduction systems to planning. In addition, a continuous and dynamic workload control method is proposed and implemented.
