This article presents the development of a distributed manufacturing case study enhanced with features that enable flexibility during the production process and the capability to continue the production process in case of fault scenarios. The approach described in this paper presents solutions to achieve the production of customized products, handle changes in product order, and minimize downtime and avoid total shutdown of the manufacturing system due to the occurrence of failures during the production process.
