The presented doctoral dissertation deals with conception and structuring of new concepts and models of manufacturing systems. The dissertation is based on two hypotheses: 1) that the development of the concept and model of cyber-physical manufacturing systems will enable realization of more efficient and responsive network production systems, and 2) that based on the developed concept and model, it will be possible to model, manage and control advanced, cyber-physical manufacturing systems in real time.
New concepts of manufacturing systems are proposed, based on restructuring of organizational and system manufacturing structures at different levels, as well as defining reciprocal interactions of the elements of such systems, through which faster and more efficient access to information is enabled. Timely exchange of information enables a management and control of new, advanced manufacturing systems, such as cyber-physical manufacturing systems, in real time.
An ontological modelling framework for modelling advanced manufacturing systems and their elements has been expanded and its application in the domain of cyber approach to the operation, management, control and monitoring of production in advanced manufacturing systems, such as cyber-physical manufacturing systems.
A new function of self-organization at the level of the elementary work system is introduced, and experimental results of the use of a cybernated approach to the operation, management and control of production are presented, through a simulation used on real industrial data.
