Smart Manufacturing Systems: Model-Driven Integration of ERP and MOM
Sprache des Titels:
Automated production systems are following a general technological trend: increasingly complex products, combined with drastically reduced lot-sizes per product variant, as well as shorterresponse and production times are being demanded. In order to be able to meet these expectations, modern IT systems at all levels of the automation hierarchy are required: from business related software at the corporate management level, down to the programmablelogic controllers at the field level. For a well-designed coupling of systems that are located at different levels, it is necessary to find, define, and implement clear data conversion mechanisms - this endeavor is also known as vertical integration. At thesame time, it is necessary to automate the inter-organizational data exchange - an aspect of horizontal integration.
In this thesis, we are recapitulating a selection of own contributions in the context of information integration for smart manufacturing systems. With respect to conceptual models wehave been employing established industrial standards, in order to facilitate industrial application. We have conceptualized, implemented and tested a series of conceptual models, inter-model mappings and transformations. Our approaches and implementationshave been successfully evaluated by a number of experiments and case studies and are therefore a contribution towards model-driven smart manufacturing systems.
