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)
This paper discusses the design and the development of a control architecture for reconfigurable manufacturing systems. It presents the approach proposed by the PABADIS' PROMISE European research project which targets the issues of reconfigurability, flexibility, and efficiency in the context of the interaction among the three levels of the control pyramid(More)
The worldwide competition has resulted in dramatic changes European manufacturing industries currently has to face. Thereby, flexibility is the main keyword. Future production systems are designed to provide both the possibility of mass customisation as well as of lot size one production with very specific requirements. The EC funded PABADISpsilaPROMISE(More)
The paper deals with the problem of modeling and implementation of distributed automation systems for manufacturing applications. In particular, a novel approach has been conceived. A suitable meta-model of the production system has been derived, compliant with the state-of-the-art industrial standards. After the compilation and validation stages, an(More)
Ethernet has become increasingly popular in automation, due to its easy integration with other networks but also for its low costs and commercial availability. Characteristics like real-time capabilities required in automation have also been added and now form Industrial Ethernet allowing its deployment in application areas formerly reserved for dedicated(More)
