Abstract

In this paper modern methods of scheduling and resource optimization based on the holonic approach and principles of “Swarm Intelligence” are considered. The developed classes of holonic agents and method of adaptive real time scheduling where every agent is connected with individual satisfaction function by the set of criteria and bonus/penalty function are discussed. In this method the plan is considered as a un-stable equilibrium (consensus) of agents interests in dynamically self-organized network of demands and supply agents. The self-organization of plan demonstrates a “swarm intelligence” by spontaneous autocatalitical reactions and other not-linear behaviours. It is shown that multi-agent technology provides a generic framework for developing and researching various concepts of “Swarm Intelligence” for real time adaptive event-driving scheduling and optimization. The main result of research is the developed approach to evaluate the adaptability of “Swarm Intelligence” by measuring improve of value and transition time from one to another unstable state in case of disruptive events processing. Measuring adaptability helps to manage self-organized systems and provide better quality and efficiency of real time scheduling and optimization. This approach is under implementation in multi-agent platform for adaptive resource scheduling and optimization. The results of first experiments are presented and future steps of research are discussed.
