This research has investigated methods and technologies to improve the agility of automated production systems with particular reference to open systems, modular control, and universal mechatronic software. A critical review of current methods and technologies, both in available literature and the study of prototype modular control systems available in the Manufacturing Systems Integration Research Institute (MSIRI) of Loughborough University, revealed that production agility could be improved by enabling adaptability at the levels of control system integration and control module configuration.
