A research facility is being established at the National Bureau of Standards to develop a small batch manufacturing system to support study and experimentation in automated metrology and interface standards for the computer integrated factory of the future. At present, this facility physically consists of two machining centers, a material transfer system, and the computer hardware/software necessary to run each center. This paper describes the first attempt to control and integrate these systems via a cell level control system which was designed using hierarchical task decomposition and real-time sensory-interactive control techniques developed for robot control at NBS.
