    The MAS-MARS System: A Multi-agent System Modelling the Transportation Domain

    MAS-MARS is a multi-agent system modelling the transportation domain. In this application scenario we have a set of shipping companies each of which has a set of transportation devices at its disposal. The shipping companies execute client orders by distributing them to the transportation devices. Client orders can be sent to the shipping companies at any point in time and the shipping company, i.e. the system solves a dynamic scheduling problem. However, it is very difficult to evaluate the system performance with respect to dynamic planning problems. Therefore, a set of statically defined benchmark examples is provided to prove the problem solving power of the system. You can click on the following icons to get more information about the MAS-MARS system.
