in the last 10 years many designs and trial implementations of holonic manufacturing systems have been reported in the literature. Few of these have resulted in any industrial take up of the approach and part of this lack of adoption might be attributed to a shortage of evaluations of the resulting designs and implementations and their comparison with more conventional approaches. This paper proposes a simple approach for evaluating the effectiveness of a holonic system design, with particular focus on the ability of the system to support reconfiguration (in the face of change). A case study relating to a laboratory assembly system is provided to demonstrate the evaluation approach. Copyright © 2005 IFAC.
