Abstract
This paper describes a new approach for controlling an intelligent machining workstation. The control system is built in behavior achieving layers, which allows a machine tool to operate at increasing levels of competence. Each layer focuses on a specific simple control task for machining processes. Qualitative reasoning is used to augment the system at the highest layer, giving the system the ability to foresee patterns of behavior that lead to failure. We discuss how qualitative models can be selected, setup and used to adjust control parameters.
