    Abstract

    In this paper the conceptual framework of multi-agent systems is combined with Local Model Approaches that are known in the field of control engineering. By doing so, a general and structured design methodology is obtained for solving complex modeling and control problems. This methodology consists of making a hierarchical decomposition of the complex problem into a set of partial problems. The solutions of these partial problems are represented as agents. The overall solution is obtained by combining elementary agents by using coordination operators. These operators allow the use of different combination techniques within one model by using a uniform description. A modeling and simulation example of an industrial cardboard producing machine is given to illustrate the proposed method.
