ANEMONA: A Mulit-agent Methodology for Holonic Manufacturing by Vicente Botti, Adriana Giret (auth.)

By Vicente Botti, Adriana Giret (auth.)

ANEMONA is a multi-agent approach (MAS) technique for holonic production procedure (HMS) research and layout, in accordance with HMS necessities. ANEMONA defines a combined top-down and bottom-up improvement strategy, and gives HMS-specific guidance to aid the clothier in choosing and imposing holons. In ANEMONA, the desired HMS is split into concrete elements that shape diverse "views" of the system.

The improvement technique of ANEMONA offers transparent and HMS-specific modeling directions for HMS designers, and entire improvement stages for the HMS existence cycle. The research section is outlined in levels: process requisites research, and Holon identity and Specification. This research presents high-level HMS necessities from the necessities, adopting a top-down recursive procedure. a bonus of this recursive research is that its effects, i.e. the research types, offer a collection of effortless parts and assembling principles. the following degree is Holon layout, a bottom-up technique to supply the procedure structure from the research versions of the former degree. The Holons Implementation level produces an Executable Code for the SetUp and Configuration level. eventually, maintenances capabilities are carried out within the Operation and upkeep stage.

ANEMONA: A Multi-agent method for Holonic production Systems should be of curiosity to researchers and postgraduate scholars interested by synthetic intelligence and software program engineering, in addition to to production engineers in and academia.
