AgentLink III, a program funded the EU's Information Society Technologies program, has been initiated to help this type of software develop over the next decade. An 'agent' is an automous software system that is able to make decisions.

In an Jan. 18 article on vnunet.com by Robert Jaques, he provides examples of how this computing technology is already finding success in manufacturing. "Daimler-Chrysler, for example, implemented an agent-based system on one factory floor to allow individual work pieces to be directed dynamically around the production area," explains Michael Luck, roadmap coordinator at Southampton University." The intention was to implement flexible manufacturing to meet rapidly changing operations targets. The result was a 10% increase in productivity."
