Abstract

In this paper a framework for Extended Digital Manufacturing Systems (EDMS) is presented. EDMS aim at an integrated environment for products, production systems, and business processes. The reference model of EDMS consists of manufacturing entities with different roles and their related domains and activities. The entities are internally constructed from digital, virtual, real, and communication parts in conjunction with human knowledge and skills. The main areas of EDMS are modelling, simulation, analysis, and change management. The integrated activities of EDMS are discussed from the viewpoints of augmented intelligence and integrated collaboration activities. The theoretical application areas of the past, present, and future and the process from ideas to innovative solutions are presented. A real-life example of a laboratory demonstration of a robot manufacturing cell in which several aspects of the EDMS framework are utilised is introduced.
