Overview
The MASCOT ("Multi-Agent Supply Chain COordination Tool") project extends the agent-based IP3S architecture to support a broader range of supply chain planning and coordination protocols. Empirical evaluation of these new protocols shows that they can lead to substantial performance improvements over the more inflexible coordination mechanisms traditionally relied upon in most supply chains. Raytheon is expected to provide a first pilot environment for this technology.
