Scheduling the supply chain by teams of agents

H.-J. Appelrath
2003 36th Annual Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences, 2003. Proceedings of the  
When a supply chain is established supply chain management (SCM) needs supporting tools for the tasks of operative planning, scheduling, and coordination.  ...  Most approaches of SCM favor a hierarchical coordination of the supply chain together with powerful algorithmic solutions for the mainly predictive scheduling tasks.  ...  Thereby the supply chain is divided in hierarchically ordered control loops built by teams of agents.  ...
