This paper presents a decentralized multi-agent system (DMAS) for dynamic resource allocation. The DMAS consists of two parts: (i) agents movement system, and (ii) agent management system. The agent movement system is used to govern the movement of agents and manipulates the task scheduling and workload equalizing between machines. A hybrid roam-space movements in the DMAS are discussed. The agent management system is proposed to handle dynamic events and provide an environment for agents negotiation. In this paper, a new dynamic event, called machine degradation (MD) is given, and its behavior is introduced. Furthermore, simulation results for different types of the resource allocation problems are given to show the ability of the proposal approach.
