Abstract
The flow of parts through a production network is usually pre-planned by a central control system. Such central control
fails in presence of highly fluctuating demand and/or unforeseen disturbances. To manage such dynamic networks
according to low work-in-progress and short throughput times, an autonomous control approach is proposed.
Autonomous control means a decentralized routing of the autonomous parts themselves. The parts' decisions base on
