An Agent- and Role-based Planning Approach for Flexible Automation of Advanced Production Systems
Paper in proceedings, 2018

In this paper, we discuss the requirements for an agent-and role-based planning approach for flexible automation at advanced production systems. Special attention is given to balanced automation systems involving humans cooperating and/or collaborating with robots, and to processes interoperability between human agents and artificial (robot) agents towards flexible production system. This application context combines the research needs from fields of the Operator 4.0, Collaborative Robotics, Symbolic Artificial Intelligence and Automatic Control. We provide a brief overview of the contextualized state-of-the-art and discuss approaches towards flexible automation in advanced production systems.
