Abstract:


Workflow simulation is an effective approach to investigate dynamic workflow scheduling and evaluate system performance. In this paper we report on a test management system for the evaluation of a range of workflow scheduling strategies based on multi-agent negotiation, where each resource agent performs local scheduling using dispatching rules. The newly developed test management system runs test cases on the Manufacturing Agent Simulation Tool (MAST), which provides comprehensive support for performance measurement and data analysis reporting.
