In this paper, we develop a framework for reconfiguration of a discrete event system (DES) controller, which has a dynamic event observation set. We will show the designed reconfiguration yields a more tolerable controller than the one designed in . Starting with a maximally permissive controller that has a full observation of its DES, we design a mega-controller that monitors the observation set of the DES controller and its state continuously. Upon a change in the observation set, the mega-controller reconfigures the controller by a aggregation or disaggregation of the controller states. The mega-controller is also responsible for feedback function adjustments if the available observation set causes a conflict in control. We illustrate the reconfiguration procedures by an example.
