This paper presents an agent-based approach toonline assembly task allocation and scheduling forflexible assembly systems. We propose an anytime-scheduling algorithm to handle dynamic changesduring planning. This algorithm is the center of an agent-based architecture in which agents forscheduling, collision avoidance, task execution, and task monitoring collaborate to overcome unexpected execution errors. A prototype planning system has been implemented for the RobotWorld flexible assembly system. Preliminary simulation results show that our approach is capable of dynamically rescheduling assembly operations after system faults occur. We are currently integrating the planning system with the assembly test bed in our laboratory.
