A multi-agent architecture to automate complex industrial systems is described. The multi-agent system is created with artificial social behaviors to enable cooperation among the agents. Agents organize their respective views about the system to react to changes and to discover system capabilities. We explore the implications of using agent technology in the design and operation of a chilled water system. Our aim is to contribute with a set of guidelines on how to build autonomous agents for industrial automation.
