ABSTRACT
This paper provides a fundamental research review of Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems (RMS), which uniquely explores the state-of-the-art in distributed and decentralized machine control and machine intelligence. The aim of this review is to draw objective answers to two proposed research questions, relating to (1) reconfigurable design and industry adoption;and (2) enabling present and future state technology. Key areas reviewed include (a) RMS - fundamentals, design rational, economic benefits, needs and challenges;(b) Machine Control - modern operational technology, vertical and horizontal system integration, advanced distributed and decentralized control;(c) Machine Intelligence - distributed and decentralized paradigms, technology landscape, smart machine modelling, simulation, and smart reconfigurable synergy. Uniquely, this paper establishes a vision for next-generation Industry 4.0 manufacturing machines, which will exhibit extraordinary Smart and Reconfigurable (SR*) capabilities.
