dc.description.abstractENGLISH ABSTRACT: Rush orders can complicate the life of project managers when they emerge especially if they are of a high priority. Initially prepared process plans and schedules become invalid while extra capacity may be needed to meet the new demands placed on the shop-floor. However, with the era of distributed manufacturing, skills and resources can be shared in an optimal manner. The paper presents an application for automated management of resources in response to varying demands experienced by an industrial cluster of tool and dies workshops. A set of holons are utilized to monitor progress of orders in process while responding in real time to new demands placed on the system. The system utilizes the Petri-net protocol for the bidding function and automatically organizes the manufacturing function in a cost effective and timely manner. The ARENA discrete event simulation platform was utilized to demonstrate system’s results in a virtual environment.en_ZA
