This paper proposes two approaches for the integration of cyber-physical systems in a production line in order to obtain predictions concerning the actual production, core operation in the context of Industry 4.0. The first approach relies on the Multi-Level paradigm where multiple descriptions of the same CPS are modeled with different levels of details. Then, the models are switched at runtime. The second approach relies on abstraction techniques of CPS maintaining a certain levels of details. The two approaches are validated and compared with a real use case scenario to identify the most effective simulation strategy.

Abstract

This paper proposes two approaches for the integration of cyber-physical systems in a production line in order to obtain predictions concerning the actual production, core operation in the context of Industry 4.0. The first approach relies on the Multi-Level paradigm where multiple descriptions of the same CPS are modeled with different levels of details. Then, the models are switched at runtime. The second approach relies on abstraction techniques of CPS maintaining a certain levels of details. The two approaches are validated and compared with a real use case scenario to identify the most effective simulation strategy.
