Integrated Process Planning and Scheduling for Service-based Production with Deep Reinforcement Learning

Current industrial production scheduling approaches assume that process planning is performed before scheduling and that process plans are fully or at least partially available before scheduling starts. However, this is not the case in service-based production [5]. Service-based production provides…

Continuous Engineering (Continuous Planning and Continuous Budgeting)

Continuous Engineering for Industrie 4.0 (Part 2)

Future-proof decision making can be enabled by Continuous Planning and Continuous Budgeting with Continuous Integration of Digital Twins: Today we continue the series Continuous Engineering for Industrie 4.0, where we are exploring how continuous engineering practices should be instantiated to the automation domain to support Industrie 4.0 principles.

Continuous Engineering for Industrie 4.0

Continuous Engineering for Industrie 4.0 (Part 1)

Rolling out changes in complex systems is always a challenge. Regardless of whether a software component needs to be modified or whether a change in the communication network needs to be made, any change may lead to unexpected behavior. Continuous…
