Considers the use of a computer based cell controller and monitor to meet cell design goals, with particular reference to the ITP cell controller. Describes in detail the modules of the cell controller: job control, schedule generation, schedule extinction, station manager, material handling manager, resource manager, access layer, and statistical process control. Surmises that by using standard modules, ITP can readily configure or reconfigure its cell controller.
