Intelligent manufacturing systems are based on seamless and flexible interaction in Cyber-Physical-Systems of Systems. Novel research approaches in computer science allow to bring intelligence to the shop floor in general and robotic systems in particular. New concepts are needed to support the worker in their interactions with the intelligent machines. In the research center Pro2Future cognitive approaches to manufacturing are researched in order to advance the flexibility and capabilities of human and artificial agents on the shop floor. The results achieved so far provide new ways of human-robot interaction, support seamless reconfiguration of robotic systems and provide decision support for gaining insights in flexible production systems. Several preliminary project results of the research center Pro2Future, with special attention to robotic systems, are presented in this paper.
