Bio-Inspired Manufacturing System Model
- 22 Downloads
Nowadays manufacturing enterprises are forced to have manufacturing systems that can support the agile response to emergence and changing conditions. In a biological body, the neuroendocrine-immune system plays very important roles to control and modulate the adaptive behaviours using mutual regulation principles. Inspired by the regulation principles of the biological body, a novel concept of Bio-Inspired Manufacturing System (BIMS) is proposed which can agilely deal with the frequent occurrence of unexpected disturbances at the shop floor level. The control model of BIMS is described from the cybernetics point of view.
