Discontinuous Phenomena of Holonic Design: Functional Completeness Versus Solution Completeness

Homam Issa, Egon Ostrosi, Michel Lenczner, Rabie Habib
2014 Procedia CIRP  
Discrimination can be seen as the degree to which a function (respectively design parameter) refuses to recognize design parameters of other holons.  ...  Thus two control parameters: (a) completeness of design parameters and (b) completeness of functions, have been defined. The behavior of the holon design defines the output.  ...  Fundamental insights into Holonic Systems Design, augmented with more recent research results on complex adaptive systems and discusses implications for the design of Holonic Multi-Agent Systems are presented  ...

In Search of Systems "DNA"

John Boardman, Brian Sauser, Dinesh Verma
2009 Journal of Computers  
We seek a science and approach that we believe will provide richer insight into system failure, 'health' maintenance, repair, replication, growth, and mutation, all those features of the evolution of systems  ...  We propose to go deeper into the structure of these systems and to discover the "DNA" (building blocks) of these systems.  ...  Relative to conceptual systems that are actually a means of design (of other systems), for example systems engineering, considerable emphasis is placed on translating functional requirements into structural  ...

3TZ Collaborative Team Environments Incorporating the Hybrid Holonic Architecture

Zenon Chaczko, Chris Chiu, Ryszard Klempous, Jan Nikodem
2010 2010 17th IEEE International Conference and Workshops on Engineering of Computer Based Systems  
The benefits of collaborative project management tools go beyond a uniform platform to deploy project resources, but to also enhance systemic processes and engineering practice.  ...  The paper describes a business reengineering process (BPR) approach to address multi-timezone (3-timezone or 3TZ) collaborative teamwork environments by combining the Holonic architecture with the Zachman  ...  Realisation: Reuse the existing weights/values of the last reengineered teleholon and factor the change in constructs/form into the 3TZ Holonic architectural space.  ...

Structured engagement in the extended enterprise

John T. Boardman, Ben T. Clegg
2001 International Journal of Operations & Production Management  
Discusses the necessity for the conscious recognition of the phenomenon known as the extended enterprise; this demands that product, process and supply chain design are all considered simultaneously.  ...  Names for each of these stages have been proposed: in sequence these are``explore new propulsion system concepts'',``design new propulsion system'',``design engine subsystems'',``develop propulsion system  ...  `H olonic'' manufacturing is seen as a way to emphasise the human-technical interface, and increase agility in manufacturing: Holonic manufacturing systems are composed of``holons''.  ...
