Abstract: This paper identifies the application modules that clearly lend themselves to an integrated information flow in a controlled manner. The modeling and analysis are formalized with the use of generalized Petri-Nets. The implementation strategy recognizes the existence of application tools whose characteristics must be retained and subjected to synergism. Hence, a prolog-based database interoperability language enables the user to construct the knowledge-base that controls the system. Extensions of this work include the incorporation of a shop floor control module, to interface with the factory level.
