Definition of the System architecture

Summary
This task will design of the overall system architecture based on smart production components that is able to support the seamless system reconfiguration and enhance the planning, simulation and operational features according to functional requirements and strong KPI driven monitoring and control from WP1.
The design of the system architecture will consider:
? The plugability mechanisms to support a seamless and on-the-fly system reconfiguration based on the results achieved during the EU FP7 IDEAS project.
? A network of cyber-physical components (composed by physical devices and embedded computational applications), each one providing functionalities encapsulated in its interfaces, namely services in the context of a service-oriented architecture aiming to achieve interoperability. This task will consider the efforts and work already developed in EU FP6 SOCRADES and EU FP7 AESOP.
? Mechanisms for the dynamic discovery, composition and coordination of modular and heterogeneous smart production components to create highly customized production systems. This task will consider the efforts and work already developed in EU FP6 SOCRADES, particularly, the Petri nets based formalism for composition and aggregation of applications, as well the orchestration of these applications.
? The local and global control perspectives, developed in the EU FP7 GRACE project, combining the flexibility and responsiveness provided by local behaviour with the optimization ensured by global structures.
The need to ensure a transition from existing systems to new smart production systems environments, the architecture should include the definition of appropriate encapsulation methodologies and tools for existing shop floor components as well interfacing and interoperability with legacy and floor applications.
