ExPlanTech: Multi-agent Framework for Production Planning, Simulation and Supply Chain Management [chapter]

Michal Pechoucek, Jirí Vokrínek, Jirí Hodík, Petr Becvár, Jirí Pospíšil
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We present a unified multi-agent technology for decision making support in production planning and scheduling, manufacturing simulation in and supply chain management.  ...  Simulation Simulation can support decision-making process in two wais. First of them is a simulation of a new factory or of an overhauled or upgraded existing factory.  ...  The agent-based architecture of the simulation offers modularity of the whole model, so it is possible to replace each emulation agent by an agent with another parameters or by a binding to the real resources  ...

Computational Visualization for Critical Thinking

Catherine Griffiths
2019 Journal of Science and Technology of the Arts  
These new approaches are developed from an arts research perspective to support critical thinking and arts knowledge through creative coding and interactive design.  ...  This paper looks back at historical precedents for how computational systems and ideas have been visualized as a means of access to and engagement with a broader audience, and to develop a new more tangible  ...  The visual tactic behind the turtle graphic, offered an embodied approach to dealing with abstraction, supported a model of learning through design and exploration rather than based off existing knowledge  ...
