Automatic generation of object models for process planning and control purposes using an international standard for information exchangeAutomatic Generation of Object Models
Paper in proceedings, 2003
A formal mapping between static information models and dynamic models is presented. The static information models are given according to an international standard for product, process, and resource information exchange, (ISO 10303-214). The dynamic models are described as Discrete Event Systems. The product, process and resource information is automatically converted into product routes and used for simulation, controller synthesis and verification. A high level language, which combines Petri nets and process algebra, is presented and used for specification of desired routes. A main implication of the presented methodology is to enable the reuse of process information when creating dynamic models for process control. This methododology also enables simulation and verification to be conducted early in the development chain.
