Abstract

This works aim to propose a Hybrid Decision Support System (HDSS), based in Simulation and Coloured Petri Nets as modelling techniques of manufacture processes, and an Expert System to assist in its use. The HDSS provides a friendly interface for the user that, after selecting input parameters, gets a series of data about the manufacturing process that will assist in the evaluation of its performance as answer. To validate the proposal, some particular scenes have been tested, with the objective of elaborate a set of proposals for improving the performance of productive systems, evaluating the impacts from the change on model parameters and providing a better understanding about the systems considered. The HDSS makes possible for managers, without knowledge of modelling techniques, manipulate data and interact with the models. The developed prototype is generic for applying on general manufacturing processes, making it possible to use it for any industrial plant, since that the input parameters of the model are adequately fitted.
