 P12: Workflow-based Arrangement of Decision-making for Autonomous Agents

Contemporary production and logistics systems are mainly organised in a centralised way and, hence, resources are managed centrally as well. Accordingly, these systems are not easily scalable. In future scenarios, therefore, production and logistics systems will be more and more split into autonomous components to reduce complexity, increase robustness, and improve scalability. The larger scope of these autonomous components with respect to decision-making will be characterised by local decisions and, hence, external resources will not be permanently available. Project P12 investigates how the scopes of decision-making can be organised in a way such that common (i.e. overall) objectives will be reached. Thereby, the principle of subsidiarity shall be followed, while coping with the varying availability of resources as well.
