Abstract—Production lines need fast technologies for critical online decisions. Orchestration of different signals and processes from a number of different sensors around the industry, into related workflows are the key signals on workflows tasks recognition. The advantages of sensor networks’ technologies outputs, that their outputs are controlled by multi agents systems, in order to orchestrate and execute related production workflows, is the main point of this research work. In specific, the aim of this manuscript is to present a system that manipulates and controls these workflows executions. System architecture and sub modules are presented in more detail through the manuscript, plus a production scenario implementation.
