A Multi-Agent Decision Support System for Dynamic Supply Chain Organization

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


In this work, a multi-agent system (MAS) for supply chain dynamic con- figuration is proposed. The brain of each agent is composed of a Bayesian Decision Network (BDN); this choice allows the agent for taking the best decisions esti- mating benefits and potential risks of different strategies, analyzing and managing uncertain information about the collaborating companies. Each agent collects infor- mation about customer’s orders and current market prices, and analyzes previous experiences of collaborations with trading partners. The agent therefore performs a probabilistic inferential reasoning to filter information modeled in its knowledge base in order to achieve the best performance in the supply chain organization.
