dc.description.abstractDue to globalization, manufacturing of products is no longer a local activity done by a single company but rather a distributed venture as more firms are realizing the need to improve their flexibility and agility. The paradigm of e-manufacturing is gaining popularity among researchers and manufacturers who aim to improve their market share and shop floor visibility by belonging to larger collaborative networks. However, real-time events which lead to operational disturbances in a plant remain a challenge most manufacturers face since they result in deviation from initially prepared process plans and schedules, rendering them invalid before they can be launched on to the shop floor for implementation. The paper presents a Holonic Control System (HCS) as a proposed solution to managing this pandemic. The research focused on manufacturing firms in the Western Cape of South Africa which belong to the tooling industry. Cited in this paper are holonic architecture together with the success factors and barriers to implementing holonic control systems in South Africa. Results of the proposed system were generated by a simulation model and revealed that delivery time and resource utilization were improved by adopting the system.en_ZA
