Modelling and Analysis of a Robust Control of Manufacturing Systems: Flow-Quality Approach

Authors: ACHRAF JABEUR TELMOUDI, Lotfi Nabli, Radhi M'hiri


This paper proposes a modeling method of the laws controlling manufacturing systems with temporal and non temporal constraints. A methodology of robust control construction generating the margins of passive and active robustness is being elaborated. Indeed, two paramount models are presented in this paper. The first utilizes the P-time Petri Nets which is used to manage the flow type disturbances. The second, the quality model, exploits the Intervals Constrained Petri Nets (ICPN) tool which allows the system to preserve its quality specificities. The redundancy of the robustness of the elementary parameters between passive and active is also used. The final model built allows the correlation of temporal and non temporal criteria by putting two paramount models in interaction. To do so, a set of definitions and theorems are employed and affirmed by applicator examples.

Keywords: Quality, Robustness, Petri nets, redundancy, Flow, Manufacturing systems control
