Abstract

This paper describes the concept and functions of multilevel supervisory systems aimed at a more efficient operation of advanced flexible manufacturing systems. A supervisory system consists of a control system, an adaptation system, a process monitoring system and a machine failure diagnosis system. Thus supervisory system assure the control of machining accuracy, the detection of human errors and tool breakage, and the identification of machine failures. This paper presents some successful results of the implementation of these subsystems.
