Abstract

Despite the technological growth brought from the previous industrial revolutions, a strong delay in the evolution of the Manufacturing Planning and Control system (MPC) logic and architectures has been observed. With the advent of Information Technology (IT) and Industry 4.0, the concepts of Cyber-Physical System and Internet of Things arise, proposing to change the classic centralised approach, typical of Material Requirements Planning (MRP and then MRP-II) systems, with a new class of more decentralised control architectures. Hence, in this work, the state of the art of Industry 4.0 architectural implementations is explored, with particular attention to recent proposals of reference architectures, such as Reference Architectural Model Industrie 4.0 (RAMI 4.0). The aim is to analyse how intermediate MPC architectures (i.e., neither centralised nor decentralised) can be classified from an ontological and taxonomic point of view within modern reference architecture models. In particular, a semi-heterarchical MPC architecture will be presented, analysing functional relationships among the decisional components/levels within the RAMI 4.0 reference architecture.
