Paper Abstract

The typical planning, design or operations problem has multiple objectives and constraints. Such problems can be solved using only autonomous agents, each specializing in a small and distinct subset of the overall objectives and constraints. No centralized control is necessary. Instead, agents collaborate by observing and modifying one another's work. Convergence to good solutions for a variety of real and academic problems has been obtained by embedding a few simple rules in each agent. The paper develops these rules and illustrates their use.
