Socio-Cyber-Physical Systems Alternative for Traditional Manufacturing Structures

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems book series (LNNS, volume 76)


This work presents a new concept for the restructuring of systemic and organization manufacturing structures in manufacturing enterprises. In the proposed concept is the role of man improved and the role of manager will be given to man, in real time. It is developed the basic concept of socio-cyber-physical manufacturing systems (SCPMS) that represents a building blocks for the new conception of an advanced manufacturing systems in a spirit of socio-cyber-physical systems (SCPS). The proposed concepts enable cybernetization of the functional and managerial competences of the manufacturing structures. This approach aims to improve the performance of manufacturing systems by increasing their productivity, availability, responsiveness and agility, all of which increase competitiveness of manufacturing companies.
