This paper proposes a new control structure for automatic production lines. To handle the production lines flexibility and to solve the optimal control problem a new methodology is suggested. In our approach the production line workstations are connected sequential, coordinated and controlled with individual (industrial) Personal Computers (PCs) interconnected in grid. These computers are able to supply the whole system control task and to optimize the production. The suggested method advantages and disadvantages are enumerated. Possible control system architecture is presented.
