The rapid evolution of technology in industrial automation systems requires closer integration between the devices in the shopfloor and the rest of the company. This integration requires intelligent devices for data collection and the ability to transform data into usable information. This course deals with providing tools and methodologies to achieve this integration, with particular reference to the automation of manufacturing industries.
The course aims at providing the modeling and methodological tools for the formalization and resolution of some important decision-making and management problems in the context of industrial systems. During the course, planning, scheduling and control problems will be formalized and solved according to the framework proposed by the ANSI/ISA-95 international standard. Special focus will be devoted to the primary and support functions given by the Manufacturing Execution System (MES). At the end of the course, the student will be able to position an industrial automation problem in the context of ANSI/ISA-95 and to formalize and to solve decision-making problems, using proper methods and tools.
AIMS: make the student aware of the complex work done on the information related to a production process, starting from the control at shopfloor level, passing through the different functionalities of the manufactiring operation management (MES/MOM), to get to the final planning activities of an ERP.
At the end of the course, the student will be aware of the different methodological and technological aspects of such information processes.
Lessons and exercises in different software environments (among which Matlab)
Field Level and Direct Control (8h + 4h):
Lecture slides and recorded lessons.
Students with learning disorders ("disturbi specifici di apprendimento", DSA) will be allowed to use specific modalities and supports that will be determined on a case-by-case basis in agreement with the delegate of the Engineering courses in the Committee for the Inclusion of Students with Disabilities.
