Abstract

Industry 4.0 has been proposed to address personalized consumption demands by building cyber-physical production systems for smart manufacturing. Although cloud manufacturing and some integrated frameworks for smart factory have been presented in literatures, it still lacks industrial applications. In this paper, we use personalized candy packing application as a demonstration to illustrate our smart factory design. We first describe the component layers of the smart factory, i.e., physical devices, private cloud, client terminals, and network, to enable the smart factory to be integrated with other systems, such as banks and logistical network, to cope with personalized consumption demands. Then, we present a scheme for inter-layered interaction. As for the physical devices, we also design an intra-layered negotiation mechanism to implement dynamic reconfiguration, so that the system can support hybrid production of multi-typed products. Finally, we give experimental results to verify efficiency, self-organized process, and hybrid production paradigm of the proposed system.
