A comprehensive framework for design of an intelligent cell-controller requires integration of several layers of support methods and tools. We have proposed an architecture that facilitates an automatic generation of different plans of sequencing operations, synthesis of action plan for robots servicing the devices, synthesis of the workcell’s simulation model, and verification of control variants based on simulation of the overall cell’s architecture. The real-time discrete event simulator is used next to generate a sequence of future events of the virtual cell in a given time-window. These events are compared with current states of the real cell and are used to predict motion commands of robots and to monitor the process flow. The architecture, called Computer Assisted Workcell, offers support methods and tools at the following layers of control: organization, coordination, and execution.
