Abstract : Microfactories are new specific and flexible systems to produce and assemble micrometric products. These systems are different of standard production platforms because they are confronted with a lot of constraints without influence at human-scale systems. This approach will lead to the development of an architecture of the technical information system adapted to a modular, reconfigurable and evolutionary microfactory. In such a context of production of microproducts, the technical information system is the spinal cord of the microfactory. The definition of the data, their architecture and their organization will build up the base of the control structure. To efficiently and surely control the set of cells, the traditional control scheme must be integrated in a global information model. This paper presents the design of an information model dedicated to microfactories and its advantages.
