Abstract: This paper presents an overview of ongoing research on holonic manufacturing control at the PMA division of the K.U.Leuven. First, it discusses the term holonic system. Next, it describes the holonic manufacturing control architecture. Third, the paper discusses a functional decomposition of the control system design; timed Petri nets are used to model the concurrent behavior of holonic systems. Finally, implementation issues are addressed.
Keywords: K.U.Leuven, computer-integrated manufacturing, decentralized control, holonic systems, intelligent manufacturing systems, timed Petri nets.
