The rationale for EPS is based on current road mapping efforts, which have clearly underlined that true industrial sustainability requires far higher levels of system autonomy and adaptivity than what can be achieved within current production system paradigms. Since its inception in 2002 as a next generation of production systems, the EPS concept has been further developed and tested to emerge as a production system paradigm with technological solutions and mechanisms that support sustainability. Technically, EPS is based on the idea of using several re-configurable, process-oriented, agent-based and wireless intelligent modules of low granularity. This allows for a continuous adaption and evolution of the production system and the ability to explore emergent behavior of the system, which are imperative to remain fit with regards to the system environment.
