Abstract

Computer integrated manufacturing and shop floor automation have not yet delivered the results once promised. This can be directly attributed to the difficulty in developing integrated systems, and specifically, the integrated control software for the shop floor. This paper presents a formal model of the execution portion of shop floor controllers. This model, called a message-based part state graph (MPSG), represents the execution model of shop floor controller as a modified deterministic finite automaton (DFA). Known methods for generating recognition software based on the underlying DFA model are used to generate the execution portion of shop floor controllers.
