Abstract

The objective of the work leans on the development of an agent-based engine, part of a Service Oriented Architecture, that provides the mechanisms to receive, interpret and execute extensions of products/processes (as software). A novel methodology that uses Service Composition paradigm as base for development and specification of features used by the acting services, along with the use of specific Engineering Tools dedicated to the parameterization of each service, provides the encapsulation of software solutions which the deployment environment can solve and act in accordance on a real-time deployment environment. This concept has a wide range of applicable areas, however, the analysis of the state of the art reveals that this is an emergent target to Manufacturer Companies, as there are missing effective solutions that provide the viability for these companies to perform engineering of Product Service Systems around their products, enabling their extension as services and providing the construction of new business models. The work is driven by industrial application scenarios which provide a novelty of aspects of product-systems systems in different sectors (automotive, home appliances, automation equipment's, etc.) of manufacturing companies.
