NEW TRENDS IN INTELLIGENT MANUFACTURING
AbstractThis article gives an analysis of a few modern intelligent production systems: biological, holon (HMS), fractal (FrMS) and ubiquitous production concepts. The key to success in modern fast growing systems is a flexibility of the production system in order to respond quickly to changes within the market. A detail representation of the characteristics as well as the advantages and disadvantages for these systems is given. Influential factors have been listed as well as guidelines for further research.
