Web Based Multi Agent Platform for Collaborative Manufacturing
The incessant pressure of meeting customer demands at a decreasing cost across the globe is forcing the modern day manufacturers to adopt a paradigm shift from the traditional way of manufacturing. This includes the utilization of digitalized manufacturing information flow in the form of agents to facilitate the collaborative product development and manufacturing across different geographical locations. To meet these growing needs and fierce competition in the current manufacturing arena, the authors in this paper have presented an “iManufacturing”-an intelligent manufacturing based on internet, intranet, web and agents. The architecture utilizes the distributive and autonomous behavior of the functional agents, CORBA, XML, Java and web.
