28–39, 2002. 1). Each time a machine changes the kind of job it performs, a setup is required, which is related to a fixed cost. Machines automatically adapt to the appearances of jobs in the environment in order to minimize the number of setups and to maximize the number of finished jobs. To achieve this we take inspiration from social insects like ants or wasps. e. different activities are often performed simultaneously by specialized individuals. This methodology is believed to be more efficient than sequential task performance by unspecialized workers as it avoids unnecessary task switching, which costs time and energy.

The thresholds should not immediately be set to a minimum value as this would cause additional setups. It is advantageous that a machine stays idle for a short amount of time instead of taking any job, as a setup determines a very high cost. Dominance Contest. The dominance contest is used as a rule to decide between several machines in case more than one machines tries to take the same job. In this case a dominance contest is held and the winner is assigned the job. For this, each participant is given a force value F : Fa = 1 + Tp,a + Ts,a , (7) where Tp,a is the sum of the processing times of the jobs in the queue of machine a and Ts,a is the sum of the setup times.
