Reconfigurability Of Manufacturing Systems For Agility Implementation
For agility implementation in Manufacturing Systems (MS) the implementation of the mechanisms for dynamic reconfigurability of MS structure, the proactivity, the emergence (as inherent features of agility), and the need for integration of the resources outside the original MS are required. This paper presents two architectures for MS reconfigurability in support of MS agility as well as two applications of the proposed architectures. This paper is the second part of the two-part paper that addresses the issue of agility implementation in MS (the first part presents the requirements and principles of agility and MS reconfigurability).
