Sustainability is currently one of the biggest challenges and driver of manufacturing industry. Nevertheless, with the decrease of product life cycles, the consumption of raw materials as well as the obsolescence of production systems increases. In this sense, agile shop-floors that enact companies with the ability to quickly reconfigure their shop-floors by deploying or removing modules are the key for sustainable industrial development. This paper attempts to characterize an innovative approach that relies on bio-inspired concepts as the main control mechanism, in order to foster sustainability by attaining the necessary shop-flooragility. Furthermore an experimental setup is presented and the results are analysed, in order to understand the influence and impact of the main properties that characterize the approach towards the system performance.
