Abstract

A frame solution for a flexible control software is developed in this research. It enables the combination of the production cells and built control software for cells using software modules. System changes can be made easily. The system is modular. The operations are grouped into operational units. Connections between units are defined when the production system is collected or when there are changes. In the structure the operation descriptions are differentiated from the implementation. The implementation is transparent to the user. The structure enables the user to assemble the production control by combining the library software modules like building blocks. The structure developed in the project is called VOU (Virtual Operative/Organizational Unit). The modularity of the structure enables the distribution of the system among inexpensive micro computers connected by LAN instead of using one expensive central computer. One micro computer can hold one or more operative units and the distribution is transparent to the application software. The frame of the structure is implemented using the newest software technology. It is programmed using OS/2 operating system. A graphical user interface and tool for figure preparation are a part of the frame implementation. The user interface is an independent operational unit using  More>>

A graphical user interface and tool for figure preparation are a part of the frame implementation. The user interface is an independent operational unit using OS/2 Presentation Manager services. The user interface is universal. Operations describe to the user interface how to represent operation parameters and themselves. There can be several user interfaces in the system. Interfaces can send and request information to and from all units in different pc:s transparently.}
