Planning procedures for energy and agent-based planning and (re)-scheduling

This task will focus on the harmonization and standardization of methods and techniques for coupling the planning and scheduling layers of the production system, and also with the other system components. This coupling will ensure the information and events exchange seamlessly between these two layers making them symbiotically integrated.
Dynamic energy and agent-based planning tools will guarantee a tactical and capacity scheduling of resources available while the scheduling will ensure the real-time and on-demand reaction to disturbances that appear. To this extend, agent-based technology, have already proved as a good solution to address the aforementioned requirements promoting the distribution, autonomy and decentralization of the decisional nodes. The work developed in the GRACE projects regarding agent-based planning will be applied in this task.
