How to design a smart factory?
Paper in proceedings, 2020

The enabling technologies of today creates a lot of opportunities. Hence, with all the different
choices the complexity of different hardware and software increases. Furthermore, the
communication between all the system needs a structure in order to make the whole system more
flexible, proactive and productive factory. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate how a smart
factory can be designed in terms of communication and interoperability between systems. To be
able to demonstrate this a drone factory has been built in order to show a smart factory, from inhouse
logistics to end-on-line quality check. This paper uses the pathway framework to describe
the development of the smart drone factory.
