In agent models of manufacturing it is hard to reconcile autonomy and cooperation. The paper proposes a solution to this problem within the context of a dynamic production scheduling problem. Our organizational model is based on economic concepts, uses market rules and an incentive mechanism. The solution integrates dynamic order processing, advance least-commitment scheduling and dispatching.
