Pheromone-based coordination for manufacturing system control


A pheromone-based coordination approach, which comes from the collective behavior of ant colonies for food foraging, is applied to control manufacturing system in this paper, aiming at handling dynamic changes and disturbances. The pheromone quantum of manufacturing cell is calculated inversely proportional to the cost, which can guarantee a minimal cost to… (More)
