Development of cyber-physical production systems based on modelling Technologies; pp. 348–355

Internet of Things (IoT) is extending quite rapidly into the physical and virtual manufacturing worlds. IoT facilitates digitalization of manufacturing systems, which are considered vitally important to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency in the future manufacturing era. In order to compete globally and to meet the rapid market changes, manufacturing companies should consider implementation of manufacturing systems that are self-organized and decreasing constant human intervention to a minimum, still keeping the process under human control. In this paper, authors used the concept of Industry 4.0 to upgrade the manufacturing system according to the modern manufacturing needs. Manufacturing systems of Industry 4.0 are called cyber-physical production systems (CPPSs). On the other hand, modelling technologies such as process and data modelling, help to establish and understand the performance of a production system, as the evaluation of the control of an automated production system helps to make it reconfigurable and leads to grasping the idea behind the control mechanism of a CPPS. The aim of the paper is to develop a CPPS based on modelling technologies and to propose a concept of upgrading a relatively traditional production system.
