Multi-state decision of unreliable machines for energy-efficient production considering work-in-process inventory

Energy-efficient operation of manufacturing systems is critical for industrial enterprises in current environmentally conscious society. Decreasing the idle time of a machine is one of the main methods to achieve energy-efficient production. From the system level, when and how long a machine can be turned into standby state with lower energy consumption is still a difficult problem for unreliable manufacturing systems considering less throughput loss. In this paper, a novel multi-state decision method based on fuzzy logic is proposed to switch a machine into different sleep states considering real-time work in process inventory of buffers. Three basic modules and their corresponding fuzzy controllers are presented to construct complex manufacturing systems with disassembly and assembly workstations. The fuzzy rules for machine state decision are generated based on the expert/production knowledge. By means of simulation experiments, the effectiveness of the proposed method is illustrated for an unreliable complex manufacturing system.
