In this paper, a distributed multi-agent system (DMAS) for cold roll forming is proposed. The system consists of the following agents: common service, roll pass design, knowledge management, product description, simulation, and artificial intelligence. There are two user interfaces in the system. They are user mediator and designer mediator. The system has been implemented to all major design processes including cold rolled steel product input, roll pass design, and simulation of the forming process. Furthermore an integrated intelligence knowledge base has also been established to assist users to design more rapidly and efficiently. A case study is presented to describe the procedure of using the multi-agent system developed.
