A Simple Smart Shop Floor Paradigm for Industry 4.0
Journal of Physics, Conference Series
This paper illustrates the needs and challenges of the smart shop floor in intelligent manufacturing and combines with insights from the field of current MES system needs, advantages and drawbacks, and describes the cloud platform enrich production service system. In a word, recent advanced technologies has paved way for a complete and systematic implement of it. the smart shop floor is in the initial stage of development in factory. At present, there is an urgent need for a viable paradigm of
... viable paradigm of smart shop floor as a guideline. By integrating all relative applications and solutions, Chongqing Guangshu Robot Co., Ltd has designed a simple enough paradigm to adopt the Industry 4.0, within which all related information is closely monitored and synchronized between the physical shop floor and the network computational space. Fig2.Control system structure Human-machine interaction The human-machine interaction interface is shown in Figure3.It can implement real-time monitoring the status of robots, lathes, machining centers, transmission lines, warehouses, and no-conformance products and qualified products in practical production. It displays bus connection state, bus communication phase, bus configuration slave station number, gateway configuration slave station number, loop connection state, loop slave station ID and the state and change of all I/O devices information of controller. The signal of controller can be forced to output by enabling key. The operators can open and close the whole system manually or automatically. It can also be used for the individual operation for the robot.
