Today the concepts of Smart factory, Internet of Things and Industrial Internet play a significant role in innovation process and new engineering design architectures. Using design thinking approach, university team of MSc and PhD students under the guidance of global IT company developed the cloud manufacturing control system based on the instructional flexible manufacturing line (FMS) equipment and production Internet-of-Things platform.
As a result, FMS consisting of several machine tools, manipulators, conveyor and storage is monitored and controlled under engineering cloud. The cloud-based in-memory database software being integrated part of the solution was provided by global IT company through industry – academia research initiative.
Physical devices have cloud representations connected with each other through the dependency model and communication channels. Presented framework allows to provide self-organization between cloud representations, scheduling of orders in the cloud and support of discrete event simulation process based on the real-time data from the devices (DEVS models simulation representation).
This cloud-manufacturing environment is fully functional and will allow to use this example for research and education of postgraduate students and industry clients and for understanding the important trends in future manufacturing.
