Title: New Directions in the Control of Advanced Manufacturing Systems
Abstract: Interest has increased in recent years in the design of advanced manufacturing systems, towards making major advances in product quality and productivity. Some specific advanced manufacturing systems are used to illustrate their control-relevant characteristics, which include (1) high to infinite state dimension, (2) parameter uncertainties, (3) time delays, (4) unstable zero dynamics, (5) actuator, state, and output constraints, (6) stochastic noise and disturbances, and (7) phenomena described by combinations of algebraic, ordinary differential, partial differential, and integral equations (that is, generalizations of descriptor/singular systems). Progress is discussed in the development of systems and control methods to address these challenges, which include hierarchical “plantwide” control coupled with sensitivity and probabilistic uncertainty analyses; “plug-and-play” technology for accelerating the design and implementation of automation, systems, and control solutions; and stochastic model predictive control formulations. Both experimental and realistic simulation results are presented for advanced manufacturing facilities developed, constructed, and thoroughly validated at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Bio: Richard D. Braatz is the Edwin R. Gilliland Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he does research in the control of advanced manufacturing systems. He received MS and PhD from the California Institute of Technology and was the Millennium Chair at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Visiting Scholar at Harvard University before moving to MIT. He has collaborated with more than 20 companies including IBM, United Technologies Corporation, and Novartis. He is a Fellow of IEEE and IFAC and a member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering.
