Resource conflict resolution of the collaborative product development process is a crucial problem for the project management. To describe the arbitration behavior in the agent-based simulation, an arbitration agent was introduced and modeled. Some arbitration strategies were constructed according to the task utility and resource matching degree. Then, the agent and it's strategies were integrated into the agent-based simulation platform. Some comparative experiments were carried out and the results were generated. The results show that the proposed strategies were reasonable and effective in dealing with the resource conflict problems in collaborative product development process.
