Abstract. Scheduling problems are usually treated within single
plant environments or within companies with several production
locations. Due to the globalization of markets companies can no
longer be regarded isolated from each other. They are in fact
elements of spatially distributed production and logistics
networks, where apart from the actual production process
transport and stock keeping gain importance. This contribution
analyses the organizational structures found in distributed
production networks and proposes an approach for their mapping
to multiagent systems for integrated production planning and
scheduling. Moreover, a platform for multiagent systems
deployment is outlined, which is apt to satisfy the major
requirements to an agent platform for dynamic, distributed
production and logistics networks.
In the past companies have often been regarded as self-contained
