Swarm Based Systems of Systems Behavior Simulation for Network-centric Enterprise
Lot of research is underway to deploy Network Centric Systems in the near future. Network Centric Systems (NCS) are achieved by networking the enterprise entities to create shared situational awareness derived from common operating information that is relevant, timely, and accurate. Swarm Intelligence describes the way that complex behaviors can evolve from large number of autonomous agents following simple rules. Swarming is seemingly amorphous, but it is deliberately structured, coordinated, strategic way to solve a common goal by simple interactions between the agents and the environment. This paper aims to present a new swarm based network centric framework for a flexible manufacturing system. Successful implementation of the proposed framework will meet the increasing demands for robustness to disturbances, adaptability and flexibility to sudden changes on a shop floor of manufacturing enterprise.
