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)
