A Formal Approach for a Self Organizing Protocol Inspired by Bacteria Colonies: Production System Application
Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Any dysfunction in production system (PS) is likely to be very expensive; so modelling by Multi Agent Systems (MAS) makes the production system (PS) possible to have aspects of robustness, reactivity and flexibility, which allow the PS control to be powerful and to react to all the risks being able to occur. In order to have a fault-tolerant PS, we propose when and how to recourse to a self organizing protocol making the MAS capable of changing its communication structure or organization, and thus reorganizing itself without any external intervention.
