The growing complexity of systems and the need for executing large projects have led to the development of complex flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) demanding specific control-monitoring architectures. The problem of failure occurrence tends to increase according to this complexity leading to time-consuming tasks as the localisation and repairing. The(More)
Many works propose to use decentralized models to control and supervise physical systems. The decomposition tasks are, often, executed by an expert on the physical application. Recent works developed at LAAS-CNRS propose method to systematically decompose centralised models based on Petri nets. This method generates redundant information between the(More)
The introduction of advanced information systems and machinery with communication capability and operational versatility provide the manufacturing systems with the capacity of material modification and transport, changes in material processing routes, different product insertion in the production line and plant layout reconfiguration. These characteristics(More)
This paper presents the approach adopted by a software development unit in order to achieve the maturity level 3 of CMMI-DEV and therefore obtaining better performance. Through historical research and secondary data analysis of the organization, the paper intends to answer the following research question: "Could the adoption of maturity/best practices(More)
