Example text

In this respect, the KB of a manufacturing system should be interpreted broadly to include if–then rules; parameters resulting from the computation of a back propagation standard algorithm of an artificial neural network; parameters related to the optimal configuration of a scheduling problem, etc. Reasoning is related to the definition of the KB. A typical example is the inference engine, which is able to fire rules of the KB according to a specific algorithm. 5 Layered Architecture-Oriented Design of an Agent reasoning module is also intelligent — that is, it is able to learn from experience.

Data are also made available to the ERP and supply chain management system, as well as to customers and suppliers for analysis purposes. Ⅲ COORDINATE: Coordinates plant operations with the enterprise and supply chain. It defines the optimized sequence of plant activities to meet the production requirements defined by demand management. The REPAC model highlights the need for tight integration among all these business processes. Manufacturing is not a “static” process; it is the result of a continuous flow of actions and information inside the company.

Three models of bicycles are manufactured: children’s bikes, mountain bikes, and racing bikes. Two color qualities are available: five different pastels and two different metal colors. 7 shows the plant layout and summarizes the process flows. Raw material (iron tubes) and finished bike components are stored in two different warehouses. Iron tubes are standard lengths long enough to manufacture the largest frame size and undergo quality control according to a defined protocol. Finished bike components arrive with quality control already certified.
