The paper identifies one of the key gaps in the current model of holonic manufacturing systems (HMS). Namely the lack of an integrated scheduler to satisfy both top-down (order-driven) and bottom-up (resource-driven) approaches within the scope of an agent-based HMS. The paper also presents how some of these conceptual ideas could be implemented using JACK, a commercial autonomous agent system from Agent Oriented Software (AOS).
