Computer Aided Prototyping of Repetitive Distributed Control
This paper addresses the problem of designing the steady-state behavior of a system composed of a set of repetitive processes competing for access to shared resources. Its objective is to provide a tool allowing to prototype a robust distributed control policy as a function of the characteristics of the component processes and dispatching rules involved. The proposed logistics-oriented methodology integrates production routes design, buffers capacity assignment, and allocation of the dispatching rules that control the work-flow as well as allows one to evaluate system’s behavior including its steady state and transient state.
