Title

Intelligent Agents In The Simulation Of Manufacturing Systems

Abstract

The Control Level functions in a manufacturing system provide the short term and real-time decision making necessary for a smooth operation. We propose a means of incorporating these functions within a simulation in the form of intelligent agents. These agents are represented as objects. They have a set of goals, a knowledge base, an abstraction mechanism, and structural and taxonomical relations with other components of the manufacturing system. The abstraction mechanism of an intelligent agent provides simplified descriptions of the events within the simulation. These simplified descriptions trigger the control actions of an agent. We discuss the necessary characteristics of intelligent agents based on this framework.
