Abstract

Future manufacturing is envisioned to be highly flexible and adaptable. New technologies for efficient engineering of safe, fault-tolerant and downtimeless systems and their adaptations are preconditions for this vision. Without such solutions, engineering adaptations of Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS) will exceed the costs of engineering the initial system by far and the reuse of equipment will become inefficient. In this work a new approach for a model driven, component based development of distributed, downtimeless real-time control, the controlled evolution of IACS and ...
