Abstract

We propose a dynamic algorithm for distributed feedback control which unifies the functions of production and maintenance scheduling at the shop floor level, and machinery capacity control at the CNC level, which are usually considered in isolation in practice. A continuous-time control theoretic approach is used to model dynamics of these three functions in a unified manner, considering stochastic machine failures and a corresponding maintenance interval. Theories of nonlinear control and discontinuous differential equations are used to analytically predict the system dynamics including the resulting discontinuous dynamics.
