Decentralized Supervisory Control of Discrete Event Systems: Using Multi-Decision Control as an Alternative to Inference-Based Control

Ahmed Khoumsi, Hicham Chakib

Abstract

Some years ago, a decentralized architecture, qualified as inference-based, has been developed for supervisory control of discrete event systems. One of its essential principles is to associate ambiguity levels to local decisions. More recently, a decentralized control architecture, qualified as multi-decision, has been developed. Its main principle is to use several decentralized control architectures in parallel. So far, multi-decision control has been mostly studied as a solution to generalize inference-based control, by using several inference-based architectures in parallel. In the present study, we regard multi-decision control with a different perspective. Instead of using multi-decision control to generalize inference-based control, we will rather use it as an alternative to inference-based control. More precisely, our objective is to avoid using inference-based architectures, by using instead several simpler architectures running in parallel.
