Abstract

This chapter applies the multi-agent system paradigm to collaborative negotiation in a global manufacturing supply chain network. Multi-agent computational environments are suitable for dealing with a broad class of coordination and negotiation issues involving multiple autonomous or semi-autonomous problem-solving agents. An agent-based multi-contract negotiation system is proposed for global manufacturingsupply chain coordination. Also reported is a case study of mobile phone global manufacturing supply chain management.
