Application: Planning a technical process having hierarchically structured tasks and parallelization options (Patent ID: US20230418249A1)

The patent filed by Siemens AG describes a computer-implemented method for executing a technical process involving hierarchically structured tasks that include the modification of physical units. The method involves providing dependency specifications for the tasks, deriving parallelization options from these specifications, generating an action sequence based on the parallelization options, and executing this sequence to implement the tasks. Additionally, the method includes receiving process data reflecting the actual state of the technical process, generating a second action sequence based on this data, and executing tasks based on this second sequence, which may replace, follow, or halt the first action sequence.

Furthermore, the patent details the execution of the technical process by a production unit, which can be in the form of a production machine, robot, or automation unit. The technical process can encompass various processes such as manufacturing, logistics, traffic management, or transport. Dependency specifications define tasks based on process sequence, causal dependencies, interaction relations, temporal information, required resources, simultaneously executed tasks, and necessary tools. The method also involves hierarchy specifications for tasks, user input for generating action sequences, and parallelization options for temporal parallelization of tasks. Overall, the patent outlines a comprehensive approach to efficiently executing complex technical processes with hierarchically structured tasks and physical unit modifications.
