ABSTRACT

The manufacturing sector is considered an important field to the industry. Its products help manufacturers to achieve more control with less labor and more output with less cost. Current technology and especially Artificial Intelligence effectively increase productivity and reduce the cost of operations, which is the key to commercial success. The main representatives of information technology in the industrial applications are the agents. They provide an efficient way to design and implement engineering environments and the agents’ technology is recognized as a new approach for the CAD/CAPP/CAM systems. This paper provides a view of the current agent technology in forenamed systems and constitutes an attempt to a) categorize multi-agent systems according to the coordination mode among the agents and b) classify the agents that take action on them, depending on their functions.
