Advanced Manufacturing systems, such as reconfigurable conveyor systems, are critical to several economies and societies. They enable the rapid reconfiguration of the system at the level of individual units or subsystems to cope with the needs of emerging markets and applications. However, because of the immense scale of these systems, several components tend to fail on a regular basis. There is an urgent need for autonomous fault tolerance techniques that will ensure high availability of these
