The focus on mission-critical communications, such as industrial automation and public safety, presses the demand for 5G ultra-reliable communication. In this paper, we investigate resource allocation to improve the rate available to a user in a factory network setting over time and locations. High availability, e.g., 99.999 % can be strived for to reduce outage. This results in a cellular network-based solution for industrial automation. Machines deployed in a multi-user multi-cell network may enjoy different levels of Quality-of-Service due to the environment variation. As a result, these machines have different outage capacities, e.g., at 99.999 % availability target. The network optimizes resource allocation to improve the outage capacities of the disadvantaged machines, and thereby improves the availability in the ultra-reliable communication region.
