Formalizing ISA-95 Level 3 Control with Smart Manufacturing System Models
Leon F. McGinnis
Achieving the vision of "smart manufacturing and "Industrie 4.0" requires building on successes in computational control of processes to create generic approaches for management of manufacturing operations, or smart manufacturing operations management (SMOM). The approach to SMOM presented in this report generalizes the modeling framework of ISA-95 with a reference model for discrete event logistics systems (DELS) that identifies five generic operations management decisions. This report applies it in a computational model of a large-scale, highly-automated central fill pharmacy that is the basis for a simulation testbed enabling convenient experimentation with operations management policies and decision algorithms.
