Distributed Manufacturing (Dm) - Smart Units And Collaborative Processes

Hermann Kuehnle
2015 Zenodo  
This choice of layered generic models for units and systems aspects along specific aspects allows research work in parallel to other disciplines with the same focus on all levels of detail.  ...  All properties are further detailed and assigned to a maturity scale, eventually displaying the smartness maturity of a total shopfloor or a factory.  ...  Adding parallelism to an event driven view requires reasoning about all possible chains of transitions to determine events that might interfere with others.  ...

Alex Doboli, Daniel Curiac, Dan Pescaru, Simona Doboli, Wendy Tang, Costantin Volosencu, Michael Gilberti, Ovidiu Banias, Codruta Istin
2018 arXiv   pre-print
This paper presents a new decision making concept in which a hierarchy of semantically more abstract models are utilized to perform online scalable and predictable control.  ...  Even though the semantic hierarchy is not tied to a particular set of description models, the paper illustrates a hierarchy used for traffic management applications and composed of Finite State Machines  ...  The DM modules interact with each other through inputs and outputs, e.g., one DM module produces outputs that serve as inputs to another module.  ...

A metamodel-based knowledge sharing system for disaster management

Siti Hajar Othman, Ghassan Beydoun
2016 Expert systems with applications  
The validation of DMKR illustrates how users can easily instantiate DM models to communicate and generalize their knowledge for the benefit of sharing it within their community. Abstract.  ...  The knowledge representation that underpins the repository structure is a disaster management modeling language that makes statements about what can be expressed in various DM models.  ...  It has different views on modelling at different layers of details. It is strictly hierarchical. Concepts at any given layer (below M3) belong to a concept from the layer above.  ...
