Frequent changes in the production requirements demand for improvement of adaptation and modification ability of production systems. To address these requirements we propose a concept and system architecture in order to provide the reconfigurability of machine tool systems in assembly shop floor. This approach allows machines and plants to flexibly adapt themselves to changing demands and interact with each other to fulfil the overall goal. Through reuse of components, their ontology-based interaction in a multi-agent architecture as we propose the time for design and building of manufacturing systems can be reduced.
