Coordinating Distributed Decision Making Using Reusable Interaction Specifications [chapter]

K. S. Barber, D. C. Han, T. H. Liu
2000 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The organization structure of Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) constrains the mechanisms that may be used for coordinating the agents' decision-making process.  ...  As researchers develop MAS that allow agents to dynamically re-organize how to interact with each other, the design of the agents must provide the ability to operate under different organizations.  ...  Acknowledgements This research is sponsored in part by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board # 003658-0188-1999.  ...

Service-oriented control architecture for reconfigurable production systems

J. Marco Mendes, Paulo Leitao, Armando W. Colombo, Francisco Restivo
2008 2008 6th IEEE International Conference on Industrial Informatics  
Supporting the predefined control, decision support systems are used to provide conflict resolution and other decision-making functions.  ...  The reconfiguration of those systems requires the existence of distributed and modular control components that interact in order to accomplish control activities.  ...  Decision itself can be done locally by the component or using specific decision components for complex global behavior.  ...
