Abstract: With the increasing number of manufacturing-line control systems, higher speed and more cost-effective data communication network systems have become necessary. We have developed a new network system to meet these needs. The new system features the following: (1) an information judgement and storage method; and (2) a method for anticipating communication. This network system enables us to realise highly responsive and cost-effective manufacturing-line control systems.

Keywords: assembly lines; communication networks; industrial automation; information management; manufacturing line control; manufacturing control; assembly control.
