Time-constrained web services for industrial automation

  title={Time-constrained web services for industrial automation},
  author={M. Mathes},
Service-oriented architectures based on web services have become the de facto standard for the design and implementation of distributed applications. Due to their standardization, web services are widely adopted for inter-organizational communication, but their use for intra-organizational communication is challenging, especially within enterprises of the manufacturing domain. Business processes within an industrial enterprise have to satisfy predefined time constraints. More precisely, the… Expand
Realising next-generation web service-driven industrial systems
Business continuity and agility form the core modus operandi of modern global enterprises. Complex business processes performed in highly distributed production systems need to be efficientlyExpand


Towards a time-constrained web service infrastructure for industrial automation
This paper suggests to seamlessly adopt a service-oriented architecture based on Web services throughout an industrial enterprise as a standardized, homogeneous communication backbone, from theExpand
SOAP4PLC: Web Services for Programmable Logic Controllers
The first SOAP engine for programmable logic controllers to advance the use of web services in the manufacturing layer is presented and offers a low memory footprint to respect the low computational power of programmable Logic controllers and allows to export web services automatically without intervention of an automation engineer.

Sequence-Controlled Web Services for Programmable Logic Controllers
Abstract The use of service-oriented architectures based on web services in the manufacturing layer of industrial enterprises enables vertical integration and promises increased interoperability.Expand
Integration of SOA-ready networked embedded devices in enterprise systems via a cross-layered web service infrastructure
This work proposes a web service-based integration of enterprise systems with shop-floor activities, using SOA-ready networked embedded devices, and examines the requirements for the integration and derive an appropriate architecture that tries to close the integration gap. Expand
SOCRADES: A Web Service Based Shop Floor Integration Infrastructure
This paper presents SOCRADES, an integration architecture that can serve the requirements of future manufacturing, and provides generic components upon which sophisticated production processes can be modelled. Expand
Industrial Machines as a Service: A Model Based on Embedded Devices and Web Services
The research presented in this article is centred in a new method which allows an integral eBusiness model, compatible with current proposals and capable of overcoming the physical and logistical constraints that prevent the manufacturing processes from taking advantage of the whole potential offered by new technologies in this field.

Industrial Machines as a Service: Modelling industrial machinery processes
In this paper is proposed a service model for the industrial machinery which provides a design pattern which details, classifies and organises the services that ideally the machine should possess inExpand
Composition of Time-Constrained BPEL4WS Workflows Using the TiCS Modeler
Abstract The adoption of service-oriented architectures based on web services in industrial automation promises increased interoperability and exibility. Since the development and deployment of webExpand
ZenFlow: a visual Web service composition tool for BPEL4WS
ZenFlow is described, a visual composition tool for Web services written in BPEL4WS that provides several visual facilities to ease the definition of a business process such as multiple views of a process, syntactic and semantic awareness, filtering, logical zooming capabilities and hierarchical representations.
