Digital automated manufacturing in the perspective of Industry 4.0


In the programme of scientific activities for the year 2024, the Information Science and Technology Section of the Romanian Academy of Scientists invites you to the Conference “Digital automated manufacturing control in the perspective of Industry 4.0”.

The conference takes place online on Tuesday 30 April 2024, starting at 18:00. The conference is supported by a research team from the Faculty of Automatics and Computers, Polytechnic University of Bucharest, coordinated by Professor Dr. Ing. Theodor Borangiu.

The presentation reviews architectures and topologies of digital automated manufacturing control in the perspective of the Industry of the Future (I4.0) defined in the last decade, based on which it proposes a cyber-physical system solution in which physical manufacturing entities virtualized by holons become tightly coupled interacting to meet global goals of efficiency, robustness and agility. Research includes new techniques for: extended digital modelling for deep interoperability (digital twins), service orientation, product intelligence, semi-heterarchical control, streaming of large volumes of data and self-driving cloud services. Contributions in this area are exemplified on an intelligent manufacturing management system platform developed by the research collective.
