The Workshop brought together researchers interested in the field of production management in automated manufacturing, who provided papers from different standpoints of industrial automation, manufacturing and information technologies and system management methodologies. These contributions cover virtually all the principal aspects and problems relevant to production management ranging from production control in flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) and robotized cells, to production scheduling and process planning. In addition, methods and tools for implementing procedures to solve these problems and for integrating such procedures into a hierarchical architecture are also included. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
