A Knowledge Representation Scheme for Processes in an Automated Manufacturing Environment

Abstract

A key factor in applying advance programming concepts to an industrial manufacturing environment is the establishment of a language to specify the process steps involved. In the Automated Manufacturing Research Facility at NBS, these process steps are described in terms of work element. Work elements are specified in process plans which are passed to controllers throughout the facility. This paper describes the properties which were considered in the definition of work elements from the perspective of automated process planning and the control system implementation at NBS.
