Web-based decision system for effective process planning in network manufacturing environment

15 Jun 2016-pp 1-7
Abstract: Recent advancements in Information technology and pervasive applications of Web-enabled services wield a profound influence on manufacturing systems and in particular on distributed networked manufacturing environment. In this paper, a modelling schema is proposed for integrating a distributed feature-based design system to organize concurrent engineering activities effectively. Later, with developed Web based decision support tool the activities of manufacturing system are integrated. The managerial insights listed in this report, obtained from the analysis suggest that the developed methodologies and tool for networked manufacturing environment offers with a number of benefits such as high interoperability, openness, cost-efficiency, and production scalability.

Abstract: Distributed manufacturing sector is increasingly enabling the Web-enabled services due to the advancements in Information technology and pervasive applications of recently advanced manufacturing systems. In this paper, world wide web (WWW) collaborative model is developed, and architecture with the web enabled service system for effective integration of distributed process planning and scheduling is proposed to assists the geographically distributed enterprises located in the context of networked manufacturing for effective coordination and collaboration. To validate the feasibility of the proposed approach, a case study has been presented and found that the proposed method and developed tool offers some benefits such as high interoperability, openness, cost-efficiency, and production scalability.

Abstract: Process planning plays a fundamental role within modern industrial facilities in that it is devoted to select the manufacturing processes and parameters and the sequences that are needed to convert a part from the initial to the final form. Evaluating the quality of a process plan from both a technological and an economic perspective becomes vital. Indeed, a valid process plan not only ensures the required quality of manufactured parts, but also reduces the production cost. The present chapter is aimed at presenting the essential concepts and the historical evolution of the process planning approaches, starting from a general point of view and then introducing the most important and recent real-world applications. In addition, it introduces the fundamental aspect regarding the interactions between process planning and production scheduling, pinpointing the strengths and weaknesses of the available proposed solutions. Doing so, it addresses students, researchers as well as practitioners.

Abstract: This paper is intended to serve as a comprehensive introduction to the emerging field concerned with the design and use of ontologies. We observe that disparate backgrounds, languages, tools and techniques are a major barrier to effective communication among people, organisations and/or software understanding (i.e. an “ontology”) in a given subject area, can improve such communication, which in turn, can give rise to greater reuse and sharing, inter-operability, and more reliable software. After motivating their need, we clarify just what ontologies are and what purpose they serve. We outline a methodology for developing and evaluating ontologies, first discussing informal techniques, concerning such issues as scoping, handling ambiguity, reaching agreement and producing definitions. We then consider the benefits and describe, a more formal approach. We re-visit the scoping phase, and discuss the role of formal languages and techniques in the specification, implementation and evalution of ontologies. Finally, we review the state of the art and practice in this emerging field, considering various case studies, software tools for ontology development, key research issues and future prospects.

Abstract: Web based agents show great potential for design and engineering applications. To integrate engineering agents into the Web, researchers must resolve the conflict between HTTP's client server protocol and the peer to peer protocol required by agents. The author surveys the types and definitions of agents, eventually focusing on those useful for engineering, and on how they can be integrated with the World Wide Web. Because it is simply silly to discuss software agents without distinguishing them from other types of software, the author ventures to offer a definition. It will be iconoclastic and perhaps applicable only to a certain type of engineering agent. But it will be useful in identifying some technical implementation issues.

Abstract: This paper investigates ontology-based approaches for representing information semantics and in particular the World Wide Web. A general manufacturing system engineering (MSE) knowledge representation scheme, called an MSE ontology model, to facilitate communication and information exchange in inter-enterprise, multi-disciplinary engineering design teams has been developed and encoded in the standard semantic web language. The proposed approach focuses on how to support information autonomy that allows the individual team members to keep their own preferred languages or information models rather than requiring them all to adopt standardized terminology. The MSE ontology model provides efficient access by common mediated meta-models across all engineering design teams through semantic matching. This paper also shows how the primitives of Web Ontology Language (OWL) can be used for expressing simple mappings between the mediated MSE ontology model and individual ontologies.

Abstract: olitical, economic, and technological forces are changing the landscape of engineering. As the world’s economies become more interconnected and more competitive, there is an increasing need for organizations to form joint design and manufacturing teams that collaborate for the life of a project and then disperse. For example, a new electromechanical product may involve a mechanical design group in Boston working closely with a control systems subcontractor in California and an OEM partner in Singapore. Similar challenges face defense contractors who need to respond rapidly to new requirements. The ARPA Manufacturing Automation and Design Engineering (MADE) program has been developing Internet-based tools, services, protocols, and design methodologies that will allow contractors to compose teams of specialists from different locations and organizations as project needs arise. As a practical test of what the MADE program has achieved, members of the MADE community undertook an ambitious exercise in Madefast: Collaborative Engineering over the Internet
