Originally coming from business world, Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) paradigm is expanding its range of application into several different environments. Industrial automation is increasingly interested on adopting it as a unifying approach with several advantages over traditional automation. In particular the paradigm is well indicated to support(More)
Nowadays, Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) paradigm is becoming a broadly deployed standard for business and enterprise integration. It continuously spreads across the diverse layers of the enterprise organization and disparate domains of application envisioning a unified communication solution. In the industrial domain, Evolvable Production System (EPS)(More)
This paper addresses the design and implementation of a multiagent based control architecture to support modular reconfigurable production systems. The requirements for plugability of modules (manufacturing components) and product changes were considered and tested against an educational platform based on fischertechnik, which resembles a production system(More)
Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) is increasingly relevant across several domains of application by promising systems openness and unification over a common design and communication paradigm. At device level, the application of SOA is carried, on one hand, by Devices Profile for Web Services (DPWS) and complementary web-based specifications oriented(More)
The present article describes the development of a standard-based software infrastructure, supported by the Service Oriented Architecture paradigm, for the management of complex distributed energy systems where efficient energy production, distribution and consumption are considered. The work has been developed on the context of the NEMO&CODED project(More)
To face globalization challenges, modern production companies need to integrate the monitoring and control of secondary processes into shop floor core system to remain competitive and improve system performance and throughput. The research currently being done under the scope of Self-Learning Production Systems tries to fill this gap. Current work(More)
Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) is becoming a de facto paradigm for business and enterprise integration. SOA is expanding into several domains of application envisioning a unified solution suitable across all different layers of an enterprise infrastructure. The application of SOA based on open web standards can significantly enhance the(More)
The paper presents the key results of the EU-project Self-Learning. The strategic objective of Self-Learning is to strengthen EU leadership in production technologies in the global marketplace by developing innovative self-learning solutions to enable tight integration of control & so called secondary processes (e.g. maintenance, energy efficiency) of(More)
