A Model of a Wireless Factory Work-Cell Using the Systems Modeling Language
Wireless technology is a key enabler of the vision of the future factory work-cell. Such a work-cell will operate autonomously with a high degree of mobility enabled by wireless technology. This paper describes the work-cell using the Systems Modeling Language (SysML). Using SysML the structural and parametric characteristics of the work-cell are described. Our model provides the architectural components and performance constraints of the work-cell in which wireless is used for a significant portion of connectivity. It identifies the structural components, interfaces, and data flows. Parametric characteristics that impact work-cell performance are included in the model. Using this model, industrial wireless networking requirements and work-cell behaviors may be developed and performance limits may be evaluated. The SysML model presented here is developed using MagicDraw1 18.5 by No Magic.
