The objective of this paper is to present the design of an agent based system for a specific model factory. A manufacturing system can be seen as a collection of autonomous, problem solving agents which interact when they have interdependencies. A concurrent programming formalism is used for the specification of the agent based system. Agents have the(More)
Product lifecycle management (PLM) adoption includes very extensive changes in intra-and inter-organizational practices and requires new types of skills and capabilities. A controlled PLM implementation can therefore be very challenging in practice. PLM maturity models, often at least partly based on the thinking of CMM (Capability maturity modeling) can be(More)
A formal modeling technique, based on colored timed Petri net and UML static structure modeling languages is used to teach students to model their business process problem as a discrete event system, before they build a working simulation model in a simulation tool (in our case Arena). Combining Petri net and UML static structure diagrams, one can build an(More)
As a subgroup within the Esprit Working Group 21108, Integration in Manufacturing and Beyond (IiMB), the authors are concerned with the management of product related data and knowledge in the extended enterprise considering the paradigm of the learning organisation. The focus of the work is on concepts, approaches and methods for capture, maintenance,(More)
