abstract

Distributed manufacturing unit control can be implemented by equipping all manufacturing components with individual controls offering standardized skills. The control of multi-component groups often requires real-time communication and a communication architecture that is adapted to the distributed control concept.We present applicable communication concepts for distributed interpolation, where the distributed interpolation use case in particular demonstrates challenges caused by the synchronous execution of skills.
