The benefits for production management are, for example::
- Decentralized method of production management without hierarchical production planning, the product manages its production according to its specification stored in its AAS.
- Auto-optimization of production – production management is resistant to exceptions (equipment failures and downtime), production is constantly running on available equipment.
- Self-adjustment of the asset/machine – the device is adjusted in real time for the next operation (eg. CNC program download) according to the operation required by the product.
- Achieving the “plug and produce” principle when incorporating new production equipment into the production process.
