Data handled in the work-cell controller software system
The data to be handled in the work-cell controller software systems
consist of the following:
- Data representing physical entities to be treated by the work-cell;
- Data representing physical entities prepared in the work-cell to be
used in machining or assembling work-pieces;
- Data representing knowledge to be used or generated in the
work-piece treatment tasks;
- Data representing knowledge to be used for the efficient use of
It is important to use these various data freely and in a timely manner.
And, these data should not have any contradiction at any instant.
