Modelling of a Flow Shop using OntoGui

Case Description

The flow shop is composed of 4 machines and 4 buffers which are connected accordingly.
formal model
The processing time of each machine varies according to the part(classes).
Process times:

Modelling of Flow shop (Using OntoGui)

Control panel

control panel
  1. 1.
    A new ontology module Flow-shop has been created.
  2. 2.
    System design tool is selected under the ontology tools.

System Design

System design window is opened

Part Types

part type part A
  1. 1.
    A new part called Part-A of the class Workpiece type is created

Process Plans

process plan part A
  1. 1.
    A process plan process-plan-a is created for the Part-A

Process Steps

process step part A
  1. 1.
    m1a is the process step of the machine M1. The processing time of 2.1s is entered using the set time option and Manufacturing task is selected under the set class option.
  2. 2.
    m2a is the process step of the machine M2 with a processing time of 1.2s
  3. 3.
    m3a is the process step of the machine M3 with a processing time of 5s
  4. 4.
    m4a is the process step of the machine M4 with a processing time of 1.5s
Successors of process step
successor of m1a
  1. 1.
    m2a is selected as a successor of m1a using the add button under add successor. m3a is the successor of m2a and m4a is the successor of m3a.

Systems

create system
  1. 1.
    A system called production.sys1 of the class Manufacturing system is created.
adding machines
adding buffers
  1. 1.
    The machines M1,M2,M3 and M4 and buffers B1,B2,B3 and B4 are created under this system using the Add new option.
Managing connections of selected machine
manage connection in system
  1. 1.
    For M1, B1 is in upstream and B2 is in Downstream. For M2, B2 is in upstream and B3 is in Downstream. For M3, B3 is in upstream and B4 is in Downstream. For M4, B4 is in upstream and B1 is in Downstream.
Manage properties of Buffer
adding buffers
  1. 1.
    The buffer capacity of each buffer was entered in the box.
Manage failure modes of machine
add failure modes
  1. 1.
    The failure mode properties of each machine is entered. The failure type is "ODF". Time to fail is recorded in terms of hour and time to repair is in terms of minutes. The value is entered in properties value dialog box.
  2. 2.
    The procedure is repeated for all the other machines as well. M1 and M4 have two failure modes
  3. 3.
    The value can be modified later by using the set button
