Robust Manufacturing Control (RoMaC)
- sudden and unexpectable large-scale changes of important parameters which occur more frequently.
- event propagation in networks with high degree of interconnectivity which leads to unforeseen fluctuations.
- non-equilibrium states which increasingly characterize daily business.
Some related arising questions include:
- What are the footprints of successful manufacturing in production networks?
- What is the influence of network architectures on target achievement?
- Are decentralized control methods beneficial towards classical methods and to which extend?
- Are efficient and at the same time robust production networks achievable?
- Which types of observed parameter fluctuations require non- standard statistical methods?
- How can we learn from evolved biological systems?
- Where can we find analogies from other disciplines such as from e.g. auditory display, perturbation ecology, physics ensuring competitive manufacturing in production networks?
- How to overcome equilibrium thinking?
