In this paper, we investigate co-operative knowledge processing as an opportunity for increasing the capabilities of computer-integrated manufacturing in the presence of varying product-mixes. We achieve this goal by exploiting the flexible capacity of robot-assisted production facilities, developing design innovations iteratively, and using fabrication according to the requirements of market-driven manufactureall according to the simultaneous engineering rules. In this paper, we offer a
more &raquo; ... ion, in terms of current appropriateness, for developing technologies, tools, theories and models, that might respond to the challenge of supporting co-operative knowledge processing for engineering problem-solving. In addition, we present case-based examples, pertaining to the areas of intelligent manufacturing, that exploit flexible automation to deal with diversified product mixes, and reach efficiency by using economy-of-scope rules. According to the following addresses: GOVERN-FOR-FLEXIBILITY KNOWLEDGE ARCHITECTURE. Section 2 discusses how to build up shared understanding, which is necessary but not sufficient to assure co-operative knowledge processing. Section 3 illustrates the decision life-cycle, needed in flexible manufacturing aiming at the piece-wise product/process quality upgrading, as aid for enhancing the return from investment. It emphasises paradigms of simultaneous engineering by enabling, among consistent options, the one assuring the highest net production with the given resources. INTEGRATED CONTROL-AND-MANAGEMENT GOVERNORS. The distributed knowledge processing organisation can serve as an aid for moving back on-process the decisional manifold consistent with flexible manufacturing (e.g. "pulling downstream constraints upstream"). The issues of co-ordinated controland-management of shop-floor operations are identified in section 4, for upgrading the manufacturing efficiency through govern-for-flexibility strategies, fully enabling embedded technological versatility with required account of leanness. The reference frames Referring to the patterns of structure discussed by the introductory chapter as a basic requirement for supporting co-operative knowledge processing, Figure 1 , this paper explicitly makes use of multiple cognitive lay-outs, built on a nine cell arrangement: · three-layers of knowledge circuits :
