The performance evaluation of manufacturing systems is a critical and difficult task to be addressed throughout the factory life-cycle phases, including the early design, detailed design, ramp-up, reconfiguration, and monitoring. An efficient and effective performance evaluation may have a relevant impact on the profitability of an industrial company. This paper addresses the application of a data model for virtual factories to the performance evaluation problem, aiming at exploiting the… CONTINUE READING
