This chapter aims at presenting the system architecture of a distributed production testbed embedded in an interoperable Shared Production network. The goal of the modular architecture is to enable flexible, resilient and distributed production. The presented approach illustrates how Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) can be incorporated in the manufacturing domain for distributed components on different hierarchy layers based on a holonic approach. The concept is validated on the real-world demonstrator testbed of the SmartFactory_KL. Furthermore, the MAS is combined with Industry 4.0 technologies such as the Asset Administration Shell and OPC UA.
