Description 1 online resource
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and indexes.
Summary This book explains how multi-agent systems improve collaborative networks to offer dynamic service changes, customization, improved quality and reliability, and flexible infrastructure. You will learn how these platforms can offer distributed intelligent management and control functions with communication, cooperation and synchronization capabilities, and also provide for the behavior specifications of the smart components of the system. It offers an introduction to industrial agents and clarifies and positions the vision, on-going efforts, example applications, assessment and roadmap applicable to multiple industries. Multiple case studies and example applications showing industrial agents in a variety of scenarios are provided. -- Edited summary from book.
