A manufacturing system is a product, and has to be designed as any other product. Therefore, a need for adequate methodological support and tools for modeling, structuring, and control of the next generation manufacturing systems is recognized. In this study, the adaptive distributed modeling framework for collaborative design and operations of network(More)
Modern theories propose autonomous structures as building blocks of next-generation manufacturing systems. However, their size and scope are not agreed upon and remain a subject of research. The paper presents a method for discovering autonomous structures within existing manufacturing systems. Firstly, it is shown how a complex network model of a(More)
The contribution focuses an investigation and assessment of the state-of-the-art and future trends of assembly processes and structures in industry in the European countries involved in the EUREKA-FACTORY project EURAS. Despite of the recognized importance of assembly as one of the key value-adding manufacturing processes this topic has not been examined(More)
In the evolvable manufacturing world we are moving towards systems made of small intelligent interacting units which make their own decisions independently from a centralized decision maker. System intelligence will be the collective intelligence resulting from a large number of individual decision, each one based on its local knowledge. in our paper we(More)
