Agent Based Scheduling in Production System 2001-01-3225
The objective in a flexible manufacturing system is an optimal system resources scheduling. The production scheduling of such system may be resolved by a set of individual agents, which can work parallel and their coordination may bring a more effective way to find an optimal solution. Criteria for the optimal solution may be created on the time or economical (cost) basis but each may have a different priority depending on each situation. In this paper we will analyse an approach to find a feasible schedule of all products, which could minimize their costs and satisfy all constrains jointed with each product.
