IASelect: Finding Best-fit Agent Practices in Industrial CPS Using Graph Databases

  title={IASelect: Finding Best-fit Agent Practices in Industrial CPS Using Graph Databases},
  author={Chandani Sharma and Roopak Sinha and Paulo Leit{\~a}o},
The ongoing fourth Industrial Revolution depends mainly on robust Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems (ICPS). ICPS includes computing (software and hardware) abilities to control complex physical processes in distributed industrial environments. Industrial agents, originating from the well-established multi-agent systems field, provide complex and cooperative control mechanisms at the software level, allowing us to develop larger and more feature-rich ICPS. The IEEE P2660.1 standardisation…

Common practices for integrating industrial agents and low level automation functions
An empirical survey of existing practices in three application area, namely factory automation, power & energy systems and building automation, reveals high diversity, customized traditional integration focusing mostly on I/O functions, without security, and an overall approach that is mostly coupled rather than embedded.
Integration Patterns for Interfacing Software Agents with Industrial Automation Systems
This work provides a methodology for mapping existing practices into a set of generic templates and also discusses the applicability of the proposed approach to different industrial application domains.
The Applicability of ISO/IEC 25023 Measures to the Integration of Agents and Automation Systems
It was noticed that some measures, especially those of a more technical nature, were either very difficult to computed in the automation system integration, or did not provide sufficient guidance to identify a practice to be used.
Industrial automation based on cyber-physical systems technologies: Prototype implementations and challenges
An overview of key aspects of industrial CPS, their technologies and emerging directions, as well as challenges for their implementation is presented and a prioritization and timeline are pointed out with the aim to increase Technology Readiness Levels and lead to their usage in industrial automation environments.
Requirements engineering of industrial automation systems: Adapting the CESAR requirements meta model for safety-critical smart grid software
This paper adapts the requirements framework developed in the CESAR European project to support all aspects of requirements engineering for safety-critical systems and finds that the use of the IEC 61499 function block standard provides an appropriate system modelling and implementation framework, which complements the strengths of the proposed requirements engineering framework.
Cyber Physical Systems: Design Challenges

  • 2008
It is concluded that it will not be sufficient to improve design processes, raise the level of abstraction, or verify designs that are built on today's abstractions to realize the full potential of cyber-Physical Systems.
The linked data benchmark council: a graph and RDF industry benchmarking effort
An overview of the LDBC project including its goals and organization is presented, and so-called "choke-point" based benchmark development through which experts identify key technical challenges, and introduce them in the benchmark workload is introduced.
Semantic database modeling: survey, applications, and research issues
This paper provides a tutorial introduction to the primary components of semantic models, which are the explicit representation of objects, attributes of and relationships among objects, type constructors for building complex types, ISA relationships, and derived schema components.
The Graph Traversal Pattern
The graph traversal pattern and its use in computing is discussed, which makes use of index-free, local traversals in contrast to the index-intensive, set-theoretic operations of relational databases.
Survey of graph database models
The main objective of this survey is to present the work that has been conducted in the area of graph database modeling, concentrating on data structures, query languages, and integrity constraints.
