Abstract

The realization of 'intelligent and resource aware' distributed enterprises requires substantial development of the underpinning modelling, information management and knowledge representation technologies. This paper deals with the 'resource-aware, aggregate planning' of manufacturing operations at early design stages. The term 'resource aware' indicates the creation of a dynamic inter-relationship between the planning entities and the enterprise resources, humans and machines. The technologies employed for implementing the pilot methods include; a web-centric co-development environment, unique methods for enriching planning entities with knowledge, and a flexible engine supporting planning scenarios by using evolutionary computing for optimisation and capability analysis techniques for feedback evaluation.
