Kropf, Peter ; Chaib-draaa, Brahim

In: International Workshop on Harbour, Maritime & Multimodal Logistics Modelling and Simulation (HMS), 2000, p. 65-70

Resource management in complex socio-technical systems is a central and crucial task. The many diverse components involved together with various constraints such as real-time conditions make it impossible to devise exact optimal solutions. In this article, we present an approach to the resource management problem based on the multiagent paradigm to be applied in the context of a shipboard command...

Resource management in complex socio-technical systems (as management and control (road, rail, sea, air), industrial engineering systems, transportation logistics, etc.) is a central and crucial process. The many diverse components involved together with various constraints such as real-time conditions make it impossible to devise exact optimal solutions. In this article, we present an approach...
