Abstract:An analysis of production control tasks is given, in order to derive requirements for a language for programming production controllers The programming of the controllers is divided into two related tasks: the specification of the controller environment (the description of the capabilities of the agents that the controller can use to make products and the description of how products must be produced), and specification of the internal control tasks like scheduling and command dispatching Three temporal operators are introduced to describe the ordering of processing steps.
