12th International Workshop on Database and Expert Systems Applications  
The constant domination of customer requirements has forced survival industries to become more and more agile. As a response to this necessity, the Holonic Manufacturing System (HMS) project proposed the principles of a re-configurable system constructed of autonomous and cooperative elements. The desired degree of response to market needs can be achieved exploring concepts from the holonic paradigm and translating them into practical applications. This paper proposes a framework developed
more » ... the axiomatic design concept to aid the design of holonic systems. This framework is the Holonic System Design Deployment (HSDD). This work establishes that it is possible to focus the holonic principles when an approach based on HSDD is applied. Doing so, it is expected that an authentic holonic system is easier developed and the desired benefits achieved.
