Abstract- We studied the dynamic allocation of trucks
to paint booths, contrasting two previously proposed
schemes in which booths bid against each other for
trucks: one based on markets and the other ant-
inspired response thresholds. We explore parameter
space for several system performance metrics and find
that this system is surprisingly easy to optimize and
that a number of parameters can be eliminated. We
