Abstract

A major facility for manufacturing research is being established at the National Bureau of Standards. The Automated Manufacturing Research Facility (AMRF) will provide a testbed where measurement research of computer integrated manufacturing systems can be performed. The control architecture of the facility is based on a sensory-interactive modular hierarchical feedback system. Each module is represented as a finite state machine that interacts through a shared time-sliced common-memory where command, feedback and database information is stored.
