Advances in Design: The Structured Design of a Reconfigurable Control Process [This paper presents the design of a control process that intelligently manages and unifies the reconfigured operations of individual manufacturing physical systems like robotic and CNC systems.

The unifying architecture UROCA is designed based on a new controller approach inspired by the concept of human’s left/right brain and whole brain intelligence, which assures traceability between the requirements and capabilities of the controller and a high degree of operational flexibility.

Abstract

[This paper presents the design of a control process that intelligently manages and unifies the reconfigured operations of individual manufacturing physical systems like robotic and CNC systems. The goal is to develop a Unified, Reconfigurable Open Control Architecture (UROCA) system that represents a control level higher than the open architecture controllers but utilizes their powerful features. The unifying architecture UROCA is designed based on a new controller approach inspired by the concept of human’s left/right brain and whole brain intelligence, which assures traceability between the requirements and capabilities of the controller and a high degree of operational flexibility. The UROCA design process follows the guidelines of a methodology called the Design Approach for Real-Time Systems (DARTS). This DARTS method proceeds from and builds on the application results of a specification methodology called Real-Time Structured Analysis (RTSA). The outcome of this design is a three-layer (bidirectional) hierarchical control architecture having deliberative left brain for normal operations and reactive right brain for contingent operations or navigation control. A third hybrid mode is also enabled.]
