AbstractDue to customers' requirements for customized products that meet their unique needs, manufacturing companies have to be more agile with how their shopfloors are configured. One paradigm for ensuring such agility is that of Holonic Manufacturing Systems (HMS). In a HMS, artificially intelligent entities (called holons) act both autonomously and cooperatively to manage the shopfloor in a distributed fashion. This paper discusses the technical challenges and business issues associated with how holons configure themselves.
