Modelling a Job Shop using OntoGui

Case Description

Job shops machines are aggregated in shops by the nature of skills and technological processes involved, each shop therefore may contain different machines, which gives this production system processing flexibility, since jobs are not necessarily constrained to a single machine.

Formal model

formal-model
The job shop is composed by 5 machines and 5 buffers as depicted in Figure 2. Each buffer is associated to the machine in front of it (e.g. B1 is associated only with M1). All the machines are physically connected each other and the path of a part type inside the system is defined by its production process. The processing time of each machine depends on the part (class) to be worked.
formal-model-1
Production processes
Consider the production of 3 parts (classes), whose production processes are reported in Table6. Each part type has a different process and flows through the system following a different path. In this table and for each part, only the machines to be visited have a process duration. In the case of open system, the generation rate is reported in Table 6.
failure-probabilities
The failure and repair probabilities for each machine
buffer-size
The sizes of the buffers are reported in Table
