AbstractWith the improvement of consumption concept, customer’s demand is becoming more and more dynamic, diversified and personalized, which requires the manufacturing system to be more and more robust and real-time. To achieve such purpose, in this paper, a hierarchical heterogeneous hybrid multi-agent system (MAS) based control architecture is proposed, a MAS-based shop floor scheduling model is designed, an event-driven rolling horizon scheduling mechanism is selected as the scheduling mechanism of the system and an improved contract network protocol is proposed to act as the system’s scheduling algorithm. According to the simulation experiments based on the ever built experimental platform, Internet of Things (IoT) based manufacturing real-time scheduling system is proven to be feasible.
