Study On Future Development Of The Intelligent Manufacturing System By Analyzing Manufacturing Systems Based On Business Process
Intelligent manufacturing system (IMS) is considered as the next generation of manufacturing systems, whereas it is still in its infant stage. Therefore, it is important to have.an in-depth investigation and understanding about this concept. In this study, typical manufacturing systems in the past as well as IMS are reviewed and analyzed correspondingly, which is innovatively based on a framework of business process containing design, production and marketing. The focus of each manufacturing system, especially IMS, is analyzed from a historical perspective. The steps for developing IMS in the future are predicted by summarizing the factors of conventional manufacturing systems. Finally, a highly targeted definition of IMS is proposed.
