The 1st International Workshop on Planning and Controlling of Smart Manufacturing Systems (PCSMS’20)

      Yaroslavl State University  IEEE   

The 1st International Workshop on Planning and Controlling of Smart Manufacturing Systems (PCSMS’20) will be held on the main days of 26th FRUCT conference on April 22-24, 2020. Download CFP in PDF.


Integration and deployment of ICT, IoT and AI technologies into manufacturing systems has led to the appearance of new type of intelligent and data-driven production systems, namely “Smart Manufacturing Systems”. Smart manufacturing systems are able to monitor the current situation (environmental conditions, demand, state of the system itself), predict trends and patterns in operational parameters, and respond to changes in real time in a collaborative manner either within one company or across a supply chain. Planning and controlling of such (system of) systems is a complex task that requires development of various methods and models enabling smooth functioning and adaptive behavior. The workshop is aimed at bringing together people interested to discuss challenges, opportunities, methods and models related to smart manufacturing systems.

The topics of interest include (but not limited to) the following subject areas:

- Semantic interoperability support in dynamic systems consisting of multiple independent participants.

- Ontology-based knowledge representation in smart manufacturing systems.

- AI enhanced planning and controlling in dynamic adaptive manufacturing systems.

- Optimization strategies in dynamic adaptive manufacturing systems.

- Job-knowledge management in cyber physical production systems.

- Modeling and predicting KPIs for assessing productivity and economic impact of smart manufacturing systems.

The PCSMS’20 is organized by TU Wien (Vienna, Austria), Fraunhofer Austria (Vienna, Austria), SPIIRAS (St.Petersburg, Russia), and FRUCT (Helsinki, Finland) as a regular session of the FRUCT conference. We welcome researchers as well as industry stakeholders to submit papers and take part in the workshop to share their research and findings.
