Extending the information-theoretic measures of the dynamic complexity of manufacturing systems

Abstract:

This paper revisits and extends the structural and dynamic complexity measures of manufacturing systems, which are based on an information-theoretic interpretation of the amount of information that is needed to describe the state of a manufacturing system. In this paper, a generic manufacturing system is modelled as a set of interacting resources and queues. At any moment in time, the combined specific states of the resources and queues define the overall state of the manufacturing system. Th...
