A major consideration in designing a modern production system is its availability. When component of the system fails, the system reconfiguration is often less than perfect. To analyze the system with failure/repair processes, discrete event and meta-heuristic models are used. As a manufacturing system includes a large number of components with failure/repair processes, the system-level conventional model becomes computationally intractable. We aim to discuss new formalism for the diagnosis of such systems using a new production framework, e.g. Internet of Things (IoT).

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • IoT Models for Artificial Social Systems (ASoS)
  • Modelling Control and Hazards in Industrial Applications
  • Iot Pathways to Change Production Models
  • Iot vs Interaction Man-Machine in Flexible Manufacturing Systems
  • Iot the covering factor of an Industrial Artificial Social System (IASoS)
  • Petri net models for IoT Applications.
  • Markov models for IoT Applications.
  • Tabu search diagnosis of for IoT Applications.
  • Simulated annealing models for IoT Applications.
  • Genetic and memetic algorithms for modelling IoT Applications.
