Current sectoral drivers for the manufacturing of complex products - such as airframe assembly -require new manufacturing system paradigms to meet them. In this paper, we propose a conceptual framework for cyber-physical systems driven by ubiquitous context-awareness by drawing together a unique and coherent vision that merges several extant concepts. This framework leverages recent progress in agent-based systems, exible manufacturing, ubiquitous computing, and metrology-driven robotic assembly in the Evolvable Assembly Systems project. As such, although it is adapted for and grounded in manufacturing facilities for airframe assembly, it is not specifically tailored to that application and is a much more general framework. As well as outlining our conceptual framework, we also provide a vision for assembly grounded in a review of existing research in the area.
