Transportation systems represent the backbone of
manufacturing systems and significantly influence their efficiency.
Component failures or disturbances generally lead to traffic
jams decreasing thereby the throughput and system performance
if not even completely interrupt the production process. To
cope with such situations, recently a multi-agent system for the
transportation domain with capabilities for reconfiguration and
adaptive routing has been introduced.
The main contribution of this paper is to present the implementation
of this multi-agent system on a real pallet transport
system. The results of the experiments show the feasibility of
the approach on a real manufacturing system and its capability
for enhancing the system´s fault tolerance preventing thereby a
significant loss of production performance.
