Rolling process is a complex system. This paper analyzes the production process of rolling based on multi-agent technology, and generalizes four types agent, namely, travelling crane agent, heating furnace agent, buffer agent and rolling mill agent, which is devoted to the use of Petri Nets for modeling and describing of dynamic systems. Then, a Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) model is developed. Moreover, communication model is designed to prove that the MAS can exactly represent the actual situation. At last, the characteristics of the model are analyzed, and the behavior reasoning of running process of the MAS by task-driven of the model is done.
