In this paper an effective design approach to the design of hierarchical control architectures for the automation industrial plants is presented. The main characteristic of the solution is the clear and structural separation between “policies” and “actions” deriving from the use of a novel abstract entity in modelling automation plants: the Generalized(More)
Aim of this work is to present a rapid-prototyping procedure for logic control of automated manufacturing systems. The presented approach relies on the Generalized Actuator concept, by which, during the design phase, it is possible to keep policies separated from actuation mechanisms. This approach is helpful in rapid prototyping because it allows the(More)
In all automated manufacturing systems the design of the control system plays a key role for the achievement of the targeted performance. A valuable support is provided by industrial technologies vendors in terms of computational platforms, smart I/O devices, networking infrastructures, integrated development and run-time environments. What is still lacking(More)
In this paper the problem of Fault Tolerant Control (FTC) in the framework of Discrete Event Systems (DES) modeled as automata is considered. The approach we follow is the so-called active approach in which the supervisor actively reacts to the detection of a malfunctioning component in order to eventually meet degraded control specifications. Starting from(More)
Our objective is to develop a general and versatile approach for building structured formal models of complex automated systems in order to facilitate their control and diagnosis. For this purpose, we present a methodology that builds the complete model of a system by composing models of the individual hardware components, their physical coupling, and the(More)
In this work a general partitioning of logic control design strategies into two main approaches, cooperative and hierarchical, is proposed and some lines for a comparison are drawn. In the authors' opinion, the cooperative approach basically collects methods inspired by IEC 61499 and agent paradigms while, the hierarchical approach, generally collects(More)
In this work we present an optimization algorithm based on a discrete event simulation engine driven by a metaheuristic genetic-like search machinery; this algorithm is used to tune logical as well as physical settings in a production line. In this paper the production line and its simulation model will be described and, after a short theoretical review on(More)
