Agent-based Material Planning for Evolvable Production System
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The two main characteristics of current market are dynamicity and unpredictability which can’t be satisfied by the traditional manufacturing system through pre-set parameters. Traditional production system is facing the challenge that evolves to a new generation manufacturing system which manufactures products in flexible volume with rapid product definition and system configuration. The advent of Evolvable Production System offers promising approach to adapt to the increasing customer consciousness and product differentiation. EPS improves system re-configurability by process-oriented modularity and multi-agent based distributed control system.
Hakan Akillioglu (2011) proposed a demand responsive planning framework to enlighten the relation between planning system structure and the manufacturing system characteristics. The proposed planning is still at the preliminary phase, it contains the coherent flow of planning activities and aims to achieve complementary model of production system and planning framework.
This thesis is based on Hakan’s planning framework and focus on the development of the domain between material inventory and the material on the shop floor. The critical prerequisite of the proposed model is that material required to be delivered in the right type material, right amount and at the right location and right time under the dynamic environment of EPS.
