Abstract: We report here on the development of a language and editor for use by operators and production engineers to instruct machine environments (manufacturing cells), as part of the ARAMIS-project. The language design is focused on making the computer transparent in the task of programming a manufacturing cell, thus making it easier for nonprogrammers to instruct the cell. The language is graphical, and is a hybrid between a traditional and a rule-based language. The conflict resolution problem is dealt with by defining possible amalgamations of rules, a process supported by presentational views in the editor.
