Abstract

A demonstration environment is being developed at the Auto-ID Centre in Cambridge, in orderto show the benefits of Auto-ID technology when applied to manufacturing control systems. In this paper, the second phase of development is examined. The first phase combined conventional control with Auto-ID information. This phase specifically looks at how Auto-ID facilitates a distributed Holonic Manufacturing System (HMS).
