The continuous need to develop Industry 4.0 branches has led to a position where highly sophisticated and multi-layer smart robotic systems are guiding the way to future manufacturing. This study aims to build a connectivity and system intelligent layer on top of a co-bot integrated Computer Numerical Control (CNC) based manufacturing cell. The connectivity layer is used to bypass all the data collected from machines to the upper intelligent layer and vice versa. When raw data arrives in the intelligent layer, it will be converted to information and again to knowledge for reflection to be sent back to the cell. Machine-to-Machine Communication and Digital Twin process for optimization are used for data conversions. This study is a downscale example of the Cyber-Physical System (CPS) for further development of the existing robot cells.
