Future Automation Systems in Context of Process Systems and Minerals Engineering

Tutkimustuotos: Lehtiartikkelivertaisarvioitu




The mining industry is confronted with a number of technological challenges along the entire production value chain. There is a need for innovative production solutions to bring the next digital generation to the raw material field. Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Cloud Computing
and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are today the mega trends in the field of process automation. The smart factory of the future will be based on these new technological tools and is centered on the use of cyber-physical systems. New process control and production management theories are also looked for. In this
paper the architecture of the plant automation is studied emphasizing on the future automation systems in context of minerals engineering. The state of the art applications of the new technological tools in mining industry are presented and discussed. The paper is concluded with a discussion on new research
directions in process system engineering motivated by system architectural innovations and Industry 4.0.
