SIMULATION OF THE PRODUCTION SYSTEM OF ELECTRON BEAM WELDING
The article explores the internal laws of the production system (PS) of electron beam welding (EBW) using the theory of hierarchical systems, which offers various ways of decomposition of a complex system in the form of hierarchies of strata, organization and complexity of decision making. The article considers a stratified representation of PSs for electron beam welding. The given hierarchical abstraction, consisting of technological, instrumental, measuring, informational, algorithmic and system strata, is a tool for in-depth description of the PS, its elements and relationships. The stratified representation of the PS allows revealing the interaction of inherently heterogeneous levels and inter-level connections that have different interfaces. The hierarchical abstraction given in the article, consisting of technological, instrumental, measuring, informational, algorithmic, system strata , reveals the content of the EBW PS, which is characterized by a consistent vertical arrangement of subsystems, the priority of the actions of the upper-level subsystems, the dependence of the actions of the upper-level subsystems on the actual execution by the lower levels of their functions.
