Simulating the generic job shop as a multi-agent system

R. Zhou, H.P. Lee, A.Y.C. Nee
2008 International Journal of Intelligent Systems Technologies and Applications  
A model combining Discrete Event System (DES) and Multi-Agent System (MAS) is proposed to simulate a real-time job shop so that it can work as a test bed to systematically study the performance of control  ...  A definition of a generic job shop is given considering dynamic events, shop floor layout and the Material Handling System (MHS).  ...  The test bed is implemented as a Multi-Agent System (MAS) because it is difficult to be represented mathematically with distributed entities and events which may even occur simultaneously.  ...
