impact of flexibility and dependence on production systems in Industry 4.0
What is it about?
Flexibility has a far-reaching impact on the design of production systems in industry 4.0 and is still a challenge in the modelling yet. In order to achieve realistic results, dependence must also be taken into account. A concept of flexible production system in industry 4.0 is presented and modelled with extended coloured stochastic Petri nets to investigate the features of flexibility and dependence in production systems in industry 4.0.
Why is it important?
Through modelling the production systems in industry 4.0, potential delays, interrupts and defaults could be prognosticated and treated on time. Consequently, the productivity and efficiency of production systems can be enhanced.
