    Network approach to design and operate agile manufacturing systems
    (Facultés Universitaires Catholiques de Mons, 1999) Frayret, Jean-Marc; Montreuil, Benoit; D'Amours, Sophie; Venkatadri, Uday
    This paper introduces a networked approach to design and operate agile manufacturing systems, able to plan, control and manage contingencies in a dynamic environment, characterized by supply, process and demand uncertainties. The aim of this paper is to present the NetMan generic concepts developed to support networked manufacturing. This approach is based on a distributed cooperative vision of manufacturing systems. We first present NetMan as a network organizational strategy by introducing the essence of NetMan organizational entities (NetMan center). Three typical networked manufacturing organizations from our application field are discussed in terms of distributed responsibility, physical and informational flows. We then present the NetMan cooperative relationships strategy, as a conceptual approach to implement operational networks. We present in this part a four-tiers relationship foundation to guide operations. Finally, we address the NetMan operational strategy. We show how this networked cooperative approach can be used to plan and control activities, and manage contingencies in a very close-to-reality manner. The NetMan experimental application is based on a real manufacturing case from a world class bus manufacturer.

    Modeling agent-based simulations for supply chain planning : the FAMASS methodological framework
    (Institute of Electrical and Electronic[s] Engineers, 2010-11-22) Frayret, Jean-Marc; Santa-Eulalia, Luis-Antonio; D'Amours, Sophie
    The agent paradigm is widely used to create supply chain simulation tools. Despite its attractiveness and extensive utilization in research, agent technology and its integration with distributed supply chain planning tools still represent an open field. In particular, there is a vacuum of research in the analysis phase of agent-based methodological frameworks. This phase represents the early modeling effort, considerably influencing the whole creation process and the resulting experiments. To contribute to fill this research gap, this paper presents a methodological framework called FAMASS (FORAC Architecture for Modeling Agent-based Simulation for Supply chain planning). It aims to provide a uniform representation of distributed Advanced Planning and Scheduling (d-APS) systems nsing agent technology to support simulation analysts. It aims to guide them in defining what are the functional requirements of possible simulation scenarios, as well as their related experimental definitions. It also guides the analysts to deploy the resulting analysis models into specification and design models. The FAMASS was tested through a proof-of-concept case in the forest products indnstry.

    Coordination mechanism design in supply chains using multi-behaviour agents
    (Olney Inderscience Enterprises, 2010-07-19) Frayret, Jean-Marc; Gaudreault, Jonathan; Forget, Pascal; D'Amours, Sophie
    In today's industrial context, competitiveness is closely associated with supply chain performance. The ongoing development of integrated supply chains has increased the importance of supply chain management. This paper focuses on the design of coordination mechanisms that determine how partners interact to coordinate their production planning. We present a simulation tool to aid in the design of coordination mechanisms using multi-behaviour agents in an agent-based planning system where agents act as partners. The implementation of this solution is realised through the FORAC agent-based planning platform, which is dedicated to supply chain production planning and simulation for the lumber industry.

    Conception des réseaux logistiques : mesure de fiabilité et planification d'accélérateurs
    (International conference on logistics research, 2000) Cavory, Guillaume; Frayret, Jean-Marc; D'Amours, Sophie
    Dans le domaine de la production manufacturière, il est maintenant largement reconnu que l'unité compétitive dépasse l'entreprise pour se concentrer sur l'ensemble du réseau logistique. Ainsi, les entreprises ne sont plus directement en compétition entre elles, mais plutôt par l'intermédiaire des divers réseaux logistiques auxquelles elles appartiennent, impliquant ainsi chaque relation client-fournisseur depuis le fournisseur du fournisseur jusqu'au client du client. De plus en plus de travaux de recherche se concentrent sur l'amélioration de la performance globale des réseaux de production et de distribution à travers le concepts de supply chain management. Dans le cadre de cette problématique, cet article présente dans un premier temps le contexte industriel, puis un ensemble de travaux sur la mesure de la fiabilité des réseaux manufacturiers et logistiques, suivi de l'amélioration de la fiabilité de ces réseaux par des mécanismes d'accélération, puis finalement de l'apport de la simulation dans l'évaluation de la fiabilité. Cet article se terminera par la présentation d'un exemple de réseau manufacturier. La fiabilité que nous étudions ici concerne les retards de livraison ainsi que le respect des volumes livrés.

    E-business in the Quebec forest products industry : perceptions, current uses and intentions to adopt
    (Research Consortium in e-Business in the Forest Products Industry (FOR@C), 2005-08-01) Frayret, Jean-Marc; Karuranga, Égide; D'Amours, Sophie
    This paper proposes an analysis of e-business, its perceptions, current uses, and the intentions of companies to adopt these practices in the Quebec forest products industry. We use the results of an exploratory survey of this industry carried out during spring 2002. In accordance with other surveys, it is shown that despite its location in a country where information technology (IT) adoption level is generally high, the Quebec forest products industry still lags behind other sectors. The e-business uses of the surveyed companies in the Quebec forest products industry value chain are explored by category; year of establishment, number of employees and annual revenue. Actors surveyed include sawmills, other value added building material manufacturers, furniture factories, and pulp and paper mills. Perceptions, currents uses, and intentions of adoption are described with a comparison to the same industry in North America. In particular, this paper demonstrates that this industry somewhat lacks a strategic vision concerning the exploitation of IT tools. Finally, this paper proposes a critical review of the limitations of our study and develops future research directions.

    Collaborative agent-based negotiation in supply chain planning using multi-behaviour agents
    (Centre interuniversitaire de recherche sur les réseaux d'entreprise, la logistique et le transport, 2008-12-01) Frayret, Jean-Marc; Monteiro, Thibaud; Forget, Pascal; D'Amours, Sophie
    In order to work efficiently, supply chain partners must coordinate their actions. When planning is distributed instead of being centralized (as in most cases), it is necessary to use specific coordination protocols between partners in order to act in a coherent manner. On many occasions, partners negotiate in order to act mutually to satisfy their needs. Negotiation is used as a coordination mechanism to find an acceptable agreement between partners or to collectively search for a coordination solution. Agent-based supply chain planning systems can integrate automated negotiation in order to implement negotiation capabilities. While various negotiation mechanisms (or behaviours) can be used in many situations, planning agents using case-based reasoning abilities can learn which to select under specific conditions. This paper proposes to study the performance of the use of a variety of negotiation behaviours and to compare this strategy to the use of a single one. A review of automated negotiation in general and specifically adapted to supply chain planning is first presented, followed by an empirical analysis from simulations of one-to-one collaborative negotiation behaviours. Partners have equivalent negotiation powers and are fully cooperative. These heuristic-based negotiation behaviours are implemented in an agent-based supply chain planning platform, using Multi-behaviour planning agents. Simulations are based on a study case from the lumber supply chain.

    Agent-based supply-chain planning in the forest products industry
    (Springer, 2008-02-02) Frayret, Jean-Marc; Gaudreault, Jonathan; Rousseau, Alain N.; Harvey, Steve; D'Amours, Sophie
    The new economic challenges and recent trends in globalization have made it very difficult for Canadian forest product companies to improve their financial position without the coordinated involvement of the entire company, including their supply chains (distributed facilities, company offices, industrial customers, and distributors). Such a new level of efficiency involves their distributed facilities and offices spread around the world, and their customers. One consequence of this new reality is that forest products companies are now facing the need to re-engineer their organizational processes and business practices with their partners. To do this they must adopt new technologies to support the coordination of their planning and control efforts in a customer-centered environment. This paper first proposes a generic software architecture for development of an experimentation environment to design and test distributed advanced planning and scheduling systems. This architecture enables combination of agent-based technology and operations research-based tools in order to first take advantage of the ability of agent technology to integrate distributed decision problems, and, second, to take advantage of the ability of operations research to develop and exploit specific normative decision models. Next, this paper describes how this architecture has been configured into an advanced planning and scheduling tool for the lumber industry. Finally, we present how an application of this advanced planning tool is currently being validated and tested in a real manufacturing setting.

    Supply chain modelling frameworks for forest products industry : a systematic literature review
    (Centre interuniversitaire de recherche sur les réseaux d'entreprise, la logistique et le transport, 2014-02-01) Vahid, Saba; Frayret, Jean-Marc; Lehoux, Nadia; Santa-Eulalia, Luis-Antonio; D'Amours, Sophie; Venkatadri, U. $q (Uday)
    Considering the economic importance of forest products industries in Canada, there has been an increasing interest in studying the operations and interactions of all the relevant entities involved in its supply chain (SC). The forest products industry has a set of specific SC characteristics to meet the needs of its final consumers. While a growing number of mathematical and simulation models are being presented for the SC in this sector, an integrated formal structure is evidently required for guiding the development of and evaluating these models. Therefore, in this research, we systematically review and identify existing frameworks for modelling SCs with the interest of highlighting the ones relevant to the forest products SCs. While we find no framework specific to the forest products industry, we identify a number of existing frameworks that could be customized to represent the industry's SC.

    A distributed framework for collaborative supply network integration
    (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2001) Cloutier, Louis; Frayret, Jean-Marc; Montreuil, Benoit; D'Amours, Sophie
    This paper presents the latest developments of the Net Man generic framework for the design and operation of distributed manufacturing and supply networks. This framework enables the implementation of specific collaborative strategies, as well as the integration of distributed business processes into a seamless value creation process. This approach, described as a collaborative integration of the business-to-business (B-to-B) interactions, allows the distributed units of a network to exchange information in a coordinated manner and to collaboratively plan, control and manage day-to-day operations and contingencies in a dynamic environment.
