Abstract

The overall manufacturing process for a product canbe composed of different phases and tasks. Each task can be seen having its own recipe or set of steps to follow and parameters to apply. The ways to represent these phases and tasks can be different depending on the level within the automation pyramid(shop floor / manufacturing execution / enterprise resource planning). This article proposes an approach to unify representations and therefore interconnections of various components of the manufacturing plants. PackML is used as a representation language of state machines for different components. The article describes a tool chain needed for developing and deploying the components to automate manufacturing sites. The use of the approach makes it possible to holistically represent production sites revealing interdependencies between different phases and tasks at the shop floor
