AR-CyMaN research will center around three thrusts:

Resilient Processes and Factory Floors

In designing for safety and resilience, we focus on the physical processes that will act as the base upon which we can build our proposed cyber-physical manufacturing network. The efforts of this thrust will provide information to the data layer and must preserve guarantees in performance even as the system adapts in the planning layer.

Adaptive Planning for Flexible Manufacturing

As the physical processes produce new data, this thrust will focus on the planning and decision-making that will empower the control layer that will feedback to improve the physical layer through insights from the data layer.

Cyber Infrastructure for Future Manufacturing

This thrust will provide the methods for storing, curating, and protecting the data from the physical layer, while interfacing with the planning and control layer. The focus of this effort will fall on infrastructure, implementation, and security for the proposed network.
