Abstract

One of the new technologies for a production system is an autonomous decentralized Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS). The autonomous decentralized FMS aims at high production efficiency by giving self-control or decentralizing the plan, design and operation of FMS. This paper discusses the research necessary for realizing an autonomous decentralized FMS with Automatic Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Machining Centers (MCs). This research develops a real-time production control method based on the predictions that grasp not only current production situations but also anticipate future ones. From the developed system it can be seen that mtdti-production that keeps the target production ratio is possible even though neither AGV actions' plans nor parts input schedules are given beforehand. Especially, it can be shown that the method will operate a FMS without influencing the production ratio even when unpredicted troubles happen, which is often seen in an actual factory.
