Simulation of Multiagent-Based Agile Manufacturing


At the Utrecht University of Applied Science we are developing an agent-based software infrastructure for agile industrial manufacturing of microdevices. This manufacturing is done on special devices called equiplets. A grid of these equiplets connected by a fast network is capable of producing an variety of different products in parallel. The multi-agent-based software infrastructure is responsible for the agile manufacturing. To test our concepts, a simulation was build based on the Jade framework, a Java-based framework for distributed multiagent systems.
