AgentSteel: an agent-based online system for the planning and observation of steel production
The steel production of the German company Saarstahl AG, a global respected steel manufacturer, represents a Supply Chain which comprehends several time-critical and highly interference susceptible processes. Therefore, flexibility, robustness and fast reorganisation are indispensable requirements on a system responsible for the planning of production inside this Supply Chain to ensure acceptable costs and retain their respected position on this market.

The presented system calculates solutions for given daily target schedules – based on the concrete orders by the customers – by a combined distributed online planning and scheduling algorithm, and, additionally, performs the observation of its realisation. Moreover, the presented real-time multiagent system supports the reorganisation after operational faults ...
