Nowadays, development of wide variety of different types of products requires more and more complex configurations of production networks out of modern manufacturing industries. Thus, efficient methods for control of complex manufacturing networks are required. In this paper we introduce such a control method for a line of manufacturing machines. The main objective of our method is to guaranty that the number of produced products follows the current production demand. First a general idea of the variable structure control method is given thought the simple case of one manufacturing machine. Then, a flow model of a line of machines with variable structure control is presented. Consequently, the obtained results on the uniform ultimate boundedness of the production errors of each machine in the line are discussed. Performance and robustness issues of the closed-loop flow line model are illustrated in numerical simulations.
