Integration of Manufacturing Functions for SME. Holonic-Based Approach
Imperfections in the form of losses and delays in production are visible especially in SME dedicated for MTO. Improving the operation of systems at the stage of product design and production organization and management becomes great challenge. The paper proposes new, holonic-based approach to manufacturing systems integration. In this context authors presents results of their achievements in the area of technical and organizational production preparation, and production running. Proposed SME’s functional modules (that behave like holons) are generally independent. The concept of the systems integration depending on continuously occurring requirements and conditions involving the creation of a process plan, preparation of schedules and the data acquired from production system is proposed in the paper. As a result of implementation of the presented integration method increases the effectiveness in the integrated areas of decision-making, and moreover, the manufacturing abilities of SME companies.
