Distributed manufacturing network provides flexibility and agility in responding to customer demand shifts. The fundamental premise of this philosophy is: self-organization behavior emerges from the interactions between multiple autonomous business entities represented in it. Self-organization behavior in the distributed manufacturing network leads the system to find a reasonable solution for complex manufacturing problems and evolve with changes. This paper proposes a three layer conceptual model of the distributed manufacturing network and develops agent based approaches for the modeling and problem solving of self-organization distributed manufacturing network. The coordination mechanism based on stigmergy and swarm intelligence in the system provides a high degree of flexibility and adaptability
