MAS and SOA: complementary automation paradigms
2008 (English)In: Innovation in Manufacturing Networks: Eighth IFIP International Conference on Information Technology for Balanced Automation Systems, Porto, Portugal, June 23–25, 2008 / [ed] Américo Azevedo, Springer-Verlag New York, 2008, 259-268 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)Text
This document surveys existing research in emergent concepts and technologies supporting the establishment of what are expected to be future automation systems. Multiagent systems (MAS) and Service Oriented Architectures (SOA) are currently the most promising concepts in this matter. The author's experience in the implementation and study of SOA and MAS for distributed automation systems suggests that there are substantial benefits in converging both paradigms and technologies In this context, the goal of the present work is to unveil their strengths and weaknesses and propose the unification of complementary features as a mean to provide unprecedented support to the study, modelling, design and implementation of complex distributed systems.
