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… 

Realising next-generation web service-driven industrial systems

The factory of the future transforms itself to a system of systems, where of large numbers of heterogeneous networked embedded devices dynamically exchange information, complement each other’s functionality and provide new innovative capabilities that satisfy the emergent dynamic business requirements.



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 the

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.

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.

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.

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 in

Composition of Time-Constrained BPEL4WS Workflows Using the TiCS Modeler

This paper presents the Time-Constrained Services (TiCS) Modeler that supports the assisted orchestration of BPEL4WS workflows with time constraints.

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.
