Abstract [en]

Recent roadmaps, ranging from ManuFuture to Industrie 4.0, all stress that true industrial sustainability will require far higher levels of a system's autonomy and adaptability. The ability to plug and produce modular equipment is a central research topic in this context. The design and implementation of such a system is not a trivial task and different solutions have been previously documented. In this context, the present chapter discusses an agent-based architecture that supports the plug and produce of value-adding equipment-for example, stations, tools, and transport equipment such as conveyors and AGVs. The architecture focus both in the reconfiguration and control aspects explore the decoupled nature of the agent-based solution as a basis of the construction of inherently robust systems. The chapter details the main design and implementation decisions and assesses both the lessons learned and the potential benefits in the context of two industrial prototypes.
