A Basic Study on the Installation of Distributed Autonomous Production Scheduling System in Ubiquitous Environment
This paper considers an auction-based scheduling system in a job shop equipped with ubiquitous network environment to cope with dynamically changing market demands. Under such environment all machines and jobs are assumed to have computing and communication devices and can serve as intelligent agents. The functions for an auctioneer and for a participant are investigated to install the scheduling system as a distributed multi-agent system. The systems sending and receiving messages for the auction form a distributed system on a network, enabling an autonomous scheduling.
