ESPRIT II Project 2202 'CIM-PLATO':
Computer Integrated Manufacturing Planning Toolbox
An environment for integration of information flow between planning and execution systems.
The objective of this project is to develop a prototype toolbox consisting of computer-aided procedures and tools to design, plan and install FMS and FAS systems within CIM environments.
The toolbox will contain tools and components for:
- manufacturing system planning, including system configuration (component selection and layout planning) scheduling and verification
- manufacturing process planning, including technological process planning, event- and motion-oriented planning, application-oriented verification, simulation and test, and the conversion and transfer of application programs to the real manufacturing system
- integration of information flow between manufacturing system planning and execution planning systems, including information modelling data and knowledge representation, and integration of knowledge bases and expert systems.
