MULTIAGENTS IN MANUFACTURING PRODUCTION LINES - Designing Fault Tolerant Adaptive Production Lines

Eugen Volk

Abstract

The usage of multiagents for autonomous, fault tolerant and flexible adaptation of production lines is not widespread in industrial applications. This paper presents usage of multiagents in industrial applications by showing a realization within a fictive example of a car body manufacturing production line. The mechanism presented here for coordination of agents in multiagent based production line factory is based on contract net protocol and uses ontological matching of individual task ontologies, to find an appropriate contractor.
