Abstract

The paper presents a formal specification of the control software of a reconfigurable fixture used for machining thin plates. The fixture is based on relocatable supporting robots. A multi-agent approach to control system structuring is used. The behaviour of agents is defined in terms of finite state automatons, transition functions, and terminal conditions.
