Current batch process systems have a limited capability concerning agile adaptation in a dynamic environment. Distributed intelligent control systems based on agent technologies are seen as a promising approach to handle the dynamics in large complex systems. However, even though regarded as a promising approach, its wide application in industry is still missing. Lack of trust in the idea of delegating tasks to autonomous agents is recognized as one of the main reasons for this. This paper… CONTINUE READING
