Workshop on Formal Methods and Manufacturing (WFMM'99)

Zaragoza, Spain, September 6, 1999

Workshop homepage:

The Workshop on Formal Methods and Manufacturing aims at discussing the state of the art in the use of formal techniques all along the life cycle of a manufacturing system, from its design to its operation. Different research areas have contributed to the manufacturing domain: computer science, discrete event systems, hybrid systems, operations research and optimization; contributions are sought in all these areas. Problems of particular interests are:

  • modelling and simulation
  • formal specifications and verification
  • performance analysis
  • control synthesis
  • on-line scheduling
