Abstract: Nowadays, the industrial company are attached with a very competitive and Highly dynamic Environment that require a rapid reaction in order To avoid the accumulation of defects in the execution plans and to ensure a better control of the manufacturing and supply plans while communicating the real-time situation to the customers vis-à-vis their orders. In this paper we propose a multi Agents system that enhances the capacity of manufacturing legacy systems for maintaining an updated planning according to real-time situations. The proposed system will be integrated with the legacy system and add to it new capabilities such as autonomy, speed, decision making support and intelligence. The logic and the architecture of the system were inspired from the human organization and behaviours adopted in manufacturing planning and control activity.
Keywords: Multi-Agent System; Legacy Systems; Manufacturing Planning and Control; Interaction Protocol.
