Goal: This project aims to study Advanced Planning Systems (APS) from a Software Engineering (SE) point of view, aiming to bridge the current gap in research, providing sound concepts and definitions founded in current international SE standars. It aims to:
To provide a definition that would consider APS as systems and not only as models, including generic Functional Requirements and Quality Attributes.
Propose means to improve exchange of manufacturing information with Enterprise Systems by using the standardized concepts of the ANSI/ISA-95 standard.
Generate and evaluate a Reference Architecture to characterize the APS domain and simplify future in-house development of APS modules in SME (Small and Medium Enterprises).
This project was my PhD thesis. Degree: PhD on Information Systems Engineering.
Participants: Eng. Melina Vidoni, Prof. Jorge Marcelo Montagna (Co-Advisor), Prof. Aldo Vecchietti (Advisor).
