A multi-agent simulation system for prediction and scheduling of aero engine overhaul
The Aero Repair and Overhaul industry is facing an increasing challenge of prediction and scheduling of engine overhauls to remain competitive in a complex business arena. An appropriate technology solution is required to achieve efficient schedules while satisfying multiple opposing constraints in a highly dynamic environment. In this paper, we describe Overhaul Prediction and Scheduling, an agentbased simulator developed to tackle this challenge. Using negotiation strategies, it deals with the multi-dimensional scheduling optimisation problem by trading off repair costs, capacity and capability of overhaul bases, among others, in light of in-service unforseen events. It supports effective strategic decision-making via business scenario modelling. Categories and Subject Descriptors I.2.11 [Artificial Intelligence]: Multi-Agent Systems General Terms Experimentation Keywords Scheduling, negotiation, risk estimation, simulation, aero repair and overhaul, multi-agent systems
