Designing Communication Protocols for Holonic Control Devices Using Elementary Nets

  title={Designing Communication Protocols for Holonic Control Devices Using Elementary Nets},
  author={James Brusey and Duncan C. McFarlane},
A difficulty encountered when developing Holonic Manufacturing Systems (HMSs) is the need to place some or all of the intelligence associated with a holon on a small, low-powered device that has real-time constraints. This requirement must be balanced with the need to communicate with such a holon using standard, open, and sophisticated protocols. A possible solution is to split the functionality into two parts with a lightweight sub-holon on the device and an associated high-level sub-holon on… CONTINUE READING
