A Comprehensive Approach to Off-line Advanced Error Troubleshooting in Intelligent Manufacturing Systems

Lehel Szabolcs Csokmai, Radu Cătălin Ţarcă, Constantin Bungău, Géza Husi


The errors recovery in the production systems will be always an open issue. Therefore, the FMSs have to be endowed with tools and techniques allowing an automatic recovery of errors. The objective of this work consists in proposing an off-line version of the software framework for error troubleshooting in a flexible manufacturing system [1]. The main difference between the on-line and off-line version is that the error database is stored on the mobile device and the frame marker device is connected directly to the FMS components without the need of the PC.). Our framework system is designed to solve the failures in the functioning of the FMS and to generate self-training from previous experience.
