Low-level (supervisory) control of flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) assures conflict-free operation and enforces production requirements such as priorities. It forms a crucial link between medium and higher-level decision making, on the one hand, and the various machine-controllers and servomechanisms on the other. In the absence of a suitable control methodology, ad hoc development is the current practice and compromised results at high cost are far too common. Here we described a model-based framework for a new, systematic approach to supervisory control.
