Evolvable Production Systems (EPS) is a fundamentally new paradigm to design, maintain and evolve industrial systems. It is a holistic approach supporting product/shop floor co-evolution and ensuring a tailored and balanced solution for sustainable enterprise development. Its core is engineered by distributed intelligence materialized in proactive and interacting shop floor assets. These intelligent building blocks include a wise interface design that ensures plug-ability and promotes system integration and bio-inspired interaction mechanisms (control and monitoring/diagnosis) to emerge a consistent self-organizing response to production disturbances. In this article a short survey on recent technical and theoretical developments supporting the EPS paradigm is held.
