Enhancing Dependabilities of Smart Units In Industry 4.0 Contexts: A Multiagent System Approach
Dependabilities of smart manufacturing units’ interactions in cyber contexts may be multiplied by multiagent system setups and their implementation into the manufacturing context. The adoption of revolving decision cycles in complex networks with the specifications of the agents demonstrates advantages but has still number of limitations and restrictions to overcome. The introduction of specific FMEA modes facilitates the specification and implementation of multiagent systems under an open architecture. Failure mode components in the manufacturing context may lay the grounds for a fast learning system.
