  • The manufacturing environment is characterized by increased complexity with different devices, systems and applications that need to interoperate, while residing at different layers of the classical industrial environment hierarchy. The introduction of the Industrial Internet of Things with increasingly smarter devices drives towards flatter hierarchies. This paper deals with an architecture for integration of IIoT devices in the manufacturing environment utilizing a Multi Agent System to this end. This extended architecture is utilised so as to perform failure detection of both IIoT devices and manufacturing resources, and react by altering the manufacturing process either automatically or semi-automatically.
