This contribution presents the basic architecture of the neutral data format AutomationML developed by the companies Daimler, ABB, Siemens, Rockwell, Kuka, Zuhlke, netAllied and the universities of Magdeburg and Karlsruhe. AutomationML serves for the data exchange between manufacturing engineering tools and therefore supports the interoperability between(More)
Distributed control systems (DCS) have gained huge interest in the automation business. Several approaches have been made which aim at the design and application of DCS to improve system flexibility and robustness. Important approaches are (among others) the holonic manufacturing systems (HMS) and the plant automation based on distributed systems (PABADIS)(More)
Industrial automation is currently on the cusp to the application of distributed systems based on distributed intelligence enabling distributed decision making within control. As one main technology within this field IEC 61499 based function block systems would be applied. But the usage of function block systems may cause problems which have to be avoided(More)
PABADIS'PROMISE (PABADIS based Product Oriented Manufacturing Systems for Re-Configurable Enterprises) is a new European research project aiming at the improvement of the flexibility of manufacturing systems by extending the applicability of distributed intelligence at all levels of control. This paper introduces the basis ideas of the concept and describes(More)
Following the increasing complexity of production systems and increasing consideration of engineering costs engineering processes have to be efficient and should generate fault free results. As different engineering disciplines, engineering tools and humans are involved in the engineering process information exchange is a crucial factor calling for(More)
In production system engineering, the machine-understandable definition of relations between engineering information views is important to enable automating dependency checking between these views. Unfortunately, in automation engineering there is no standardized representation of relations and dependencies, which makes it difficult to automate consistency(More)
