Multiagent-Based Model For ESCM

Delia MARINCAS
2011 Informatică economică  
Multiagent-based approach is appropriate for eSCM because it shows many of the characteristics a SCM system should have.  ...  For this reason, we have proposed a multiagent-based eSCM model which configures a virtual SC, automates the SC activities: selling, purchasing, manufacturing, planning, inventory, etc.  ...  in order to obtain agile manufacturing networks in a dynamic environment.  ...

Towards Adaptive Workflow Enactment Using Multiagent Systems

Paul A. Buhler, Jos� M. Vidal
2005 Journal of Special Topics in Information Technology and Management  
The redesigned systems will likely employ some form of workflow management system. Workflow management systems exactly enact business processes described in a process description language.  ...  We propose that workflow description languages and their associated design tools can be used to specify a multiagent system.  ...  Today's agile manufacturing environments are controlled by Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) that schedule production based upon highly detailed process plans.  ...
