English abstract:
Current batch process systems have a limited capability
concerning agile adaptation in a dynamic environment. Distributed
intelligent control systems based on agent technologies
are seen as a promising approach to handle the dynamics in large
complex systems. However, even though regarded as a promising
approach, its wide application in industry is still missing. Lack
of trust in the idea of delegating tasks to autonomous agents
is recognized as one of the main reasons for this. This paper
presents a visualisation tool for an agent-based batch process
system able to offer the human user the complete overview of
the agentsī activities as well as a possibility to supervise their
actions through an adequate Human Machine Interface. The
visualization is also compatible with the standard ISA-88. The
system is currently being tested and evaluated in the Odo Struger
Laboratory at the Automation and Control Institute.
