This work presents a case study showing the design of a glass cutting machine tool. This design is the first technological demonstrator of the COSME platform, its guidelines and tools. It represents an approach to simplify the design of control software in the manufacturing context, allowing to shorten time-to-market and aggregating value-added features.
The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has defined the standard IEC 61499 for the next generation of distributed control systems used in agile manufacturing systems. This work identifies and characterizes different types of communications needed for distributed control. It simplifies application designers work and middleware implementation for the standard. Then, a proposal is presented...
