Abstract

Considering the different activities related to the life-cycle of a flexible production system, this work introduces a new approach based on the use of simulation techniques to aid the design, optimization and implementation tasks. Using a three-levels integration platform and a structure of a simulation environment, a methodology is proposed for the correct layout-design and optimization, the validation of production strategies, the optimization of control logic, and the avoidance of collision situations, among other functionalities.
