Abstract:In this paper, we present the system architecture of a flexible manufacturing planning and control system, named EtoPlan. The concept is based on the holonic control approach of building multiple and temporary hierarchies (holarchies). This paper describes the system architecture for flexible planning and control of activities and (groups of) Resources in a manufacture-to-order environment. The system architecture consists of generic control modules that can be applied on different hierarchical levels and for different kinds of manufacturing activities. The main function of the Resource Controller is the Determine Applicability function.
