Resumé

This paper presents the implementation framework and performance evaluation of a wireless Manufacturing Execution System (MES) for Industry 4.0. The proposed solution is based on self-configuring multi-access gateways that enable seamless transport of delay-tolerant industrial Ethernet control data traffic over LTE or Wi-Fi (or both, using hybrid-access techniques). The wireless MES solution has been deployed at the Smart Production Lab facilities at Aalborg University, allowing the removal of Ethernet cables between modules in a production line setup, and thus enabling a faster re-configuration of the production facilities. The performance of the wireless MES solution is benchmarked against the reference Ethernet case in terms of latency and packet loss. The trials revealed that, despite the increase in latency and packet loss as compared to the reference operation over Ethernet, both LTE andWi-Fi under
different conditions were able to reliably support the production control operations at MES level without discernible difference on the overall functionality of the system.
