Simulation of Production Processes
Author: Konopa Miroslav
This master thesis focuses on the design of product line, its formal description of processes and simulations. Part of the line is composed of real devices. This product line was designed as the car weld line with three robot work cells. Simulation was created in Process Designer and Process Simulate in Virtual Commissioning mode. External formal description was created in Sequential Functional Chart (SFC) in Totally Integrated Automation portal for Programmable Logic Controller (PLC). This description was connected into simulation via OPC server. Simulation also contained a real robot KUKA KR5 arc, which was connected to PLC via industrial network PROFINET and subsequently into simulation.
