Security of supply chains by automatic multi-agents collaboration Conference Paper uri icon


  • Abstract Protocols for real-time collaboration of multiple agents for supply chain security tasks utilizing RFID information with real-time sensor tracking and monitoring are presented. The proposed system provides a structured framework and a set of interaction services by controlling a network of agents; each of the agents has a set of skills and resources that they contribute to the system. Optimal control through task administration protocols of agents' collaboration is developed. Simulation analysis indicated improved performance of 11% by optimal task assignment and agent's collaboration, with improved time management flexibility.
