CORA is a framework for distributed problem solving by a group of diverse and interacting reactive agents. Problem characteristics are utilized to achieve problem solving by asynchronous and well coordinated local interactions. The coordination mechanisms guide the search space exploration by the society of interacting agents, facilitating rapid convergence to a solution. CORA has been applying to job shop scheduling constraint satisfaction/optimization problems with outstanding performances.
