This paper investigates possible implementations of the autonomous agents concept in flexible manufacturing control. The implementation issues and the effectiveness of different control architectures and algorithms are analyzed by means of a simulation model of a flexible job shop. Extensive experimental results are reported, allowing the evaluation of the trade-off between the degree of autonomy and system performance.
