This paper describes theresults of research regarding the emerging theory of Holonic Manufacturing Systems. This theory and in particular itscorresponding reference architecture serves as the basis for thedevelopment of a system-architecture for shop floor controlsystems in a multi-cellular context. The development andimplementation of the system-architecture, named HoMuCS (HolonicMulti-cell Control System) is described and its applicability isinvestigated through two industrial case studies.
