This paper presents the details of a simulation study carried out for analyzing the impact of scheduling rules that control part launching and tool request selection decisions of a flexible manufacturing system (FMS) operating under tool movement along with part movement policy. Two different scenarios have been investigated with respect to the operation of… (More)
This paper presents an approach on Hard real-time (HRT) implementation of virtual instruments(VI). Requirements for HRT realization is presented. It highlights errors in real-time implementation of VIs and proposes a methodology to eliminate them. Time analysis methodology is included. Feasibility of HRT is explained and verified with results.
