Abstract

The paper refers to a general idea of the multi-agent method for modeling the logistics system in the steel industry. The advantage of the use of the agent-based approach as decision making system in transport, is that the agent-based systems are efficient (asynchronous independent operation), reliable (failure of one agent does not cause failure of the entire system), flexible (can adapt the system to a larger size by adding new agents without impact on existing) and have an ability to respond to changes occurring in the environment. The paper shows a scheme of the multi-agent system used for modeling, its basic goal, the range of knowledge, actions and states of its components, as well as the environment in which agents operate.

Keywords: multi-agent system, transport, logistics system
