Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE,volume 376)

Abstract

We present a framework for realization of a decentralized decision support system for deployment in production scenarios with a low level of automation, such as in multi-site construction. Furthermore we present the insights concerning the improvements of the production process when applying online simulation based optimization methods in that scenarios. Our solution shows how to realize a central control and decision support station with special focus on easy connection to the possible multiple construction sites and on high usability for nonexperts. Our framework is able to connect to a large number of modeling, simulation and analysis tools. For sake of usability it turned out, that only dialogue-based communication with the end user seems applicable in those scenarios, where often only simple devices are present.
