This paper presents our vision and initial design of a wireless manufacturing execution system (MES) solution, which will be soon integrated in the fully-automated small production line in the Smart Production Lab at Aalborg University. The replacement of the current Ethernet-based control system with our wireless solution, will allow to remove all communication wires between the different stations of the production line and thus, enabling a faster re-configuration of the production facilities. The proposed solution also sets the base for the future integration of new industrial use cases requiring full mobility support.
