In this paper, we propose a Risk-Averse Priced Timed Automata (PTA) Model Predictive Control (MPC) framework to increase flexibility of cyber-physical systems. To improve flexibility in these systems, our risk-averse framework solves a multi-objective optimization problem to minimize the cost and risk, simultaneously. While minimizing cost ensures the least effort to achieve a task, minimizing risk provides guarantees on the feasibility of the task even during uncertainty. Our framework explores the trade-off between these two qualities to obtain risk-averse control actions. The solution of risk-averse PTA MPC dynamic decision-making algorithm reacts relatively better to PTA changes compared to PTA MPC without risk-averse feature. An example from manufacturing systems is presented to show the application of the proposed control strategy.
