Abstract
A software agents based manufacturing scheduling module for Advanced Planning and Scheduling (APS) is presented. The problem considered is scheduling of jobs with multiple operations, distinct operation processing times, arrival times, and due dates in a job shop environment. Sequence dependent setups are also considered. The additional constraints of material and resource availability are also taken into consideration. The scheduling is to be considered in integration with production planning. The production plans can be changed dynamically and the schedule is to be generated to reflect the appropriate changes. The design of a generic multi-agent framework which is domain independent along with algorithms that are used by the agents is also discussed.
