In the field of intelligent manufacturing, there is a definitive need for methodologies for holonic systems (HMS), based on software engineering principles, which assist the system designer in every development step and provide clear, unambiguous analysis and design guidelines. The agentoriented technologies assure the support to create holonic paradigms. These paradigms, holonic manufacturing systems and Multi-Agent System know the last two decade a very high development and received a lot of attention in academia and industry lately. Holonic architectures combine the Function Block based programming, for the low level real — time control, and the multi-agent technologies, for the decision-making level. The IEC 61499 standard, FIPA standardization are examples of topics covered in this paper. To support this thesis, the use of agent technology to design, and implement the information processing in a holonic manufacturing system is discussed.
