Much work is in progress in order to improve acceptability, effectiveness and service of modern production systems. This is particularly true when ecology and the new e-business constraints are considered. Within this framework, the use of software agents in factory automation is a rather new topic. We present the EC-funded PABADIS project, which aims at employing partially mobile software agents to facilitate production planning and eliminate constraints of the traditional centralized approach… CONTINUE READING
