Abstract

This paper addresses the information-modeling issue for SAIL 1, an integrated shopfloor manufacturing system with flexible manufacturing and material-handling capabilities at the City University of Hong Kong. Based on analyses of the system configuration and information flow structure of SAIL 1, this paper presents a data-modeling strategy to model its information system from the system-physical configuration, system-operation control and system-operation monitoring, respectively. By using the IDEF1x methodology to abstract, classify and define the information objects and the interrelationships between them, three semantic data models were constructed in accordance with the system requirements and modeling strategy, from which the internal and external schemata of the SAIL 1 information system can be derived correspondingly.
