Abstract

Recent years have brought significantly increased interest in integrating wireless communication capabilities within factory automation systems. Such integration motivates the study of interactions among the physical layout of factory workcells, wireless communication among the workcells, and overall factory system performance. In this paper, we develop methods for modeling and simulating these important kinds of interactions, and demonstrate the application of these methods to the experimental study of complex design spaces for factory automation systems. The proposed methodology for modeling, simulation, and design space exploration can be used to gain insight into approaches for improving the configuration (e.g., physical layout or wireless protocol settings) of existing factory systems, and for understanding trade-offs in the design of new systems. We concretely demonstrate our proposed design space exploration methods through extensive simulation experiments.
