Overview

This book presents the advanced technology developed in the international "Holonic Manufacturing Systems" project by major manufacturers along with universities and research institutions for low-volume high-variety manufacturing as seen to be needed in the 21st century. This technology is based on the concept of holons, which are the units of production and behave as autonomous and cooperative agents, providing flexibility, adaptability, agility and dynamic reconfigurability. They are expected to produce fault-tolerant, scalable and robust operational environment, thus reducing waste and increasing throughput. This book describes the technology of the near future. As the project was driven by industry, the results presented are of vital interest for both researchers as well as engineers and professionals in industry.
