Flexible manufacturing system, multi-agent systems.


Flexible manufacturing systems working in highly dynamic modern markets requires innovative concepts to wards flexible management, production scheduling and planning. The agent-based technology provides a desired flexibility, supports a short reaction time and can under lie the required planning mechanismes. Moreover it does not require any centralized elements allowing a distributed implementation and essentially increasing a reliability of common system. A specific software architecture supports this flexibility and enables an adaptive reaction on distur bances often arising in production.
