    Abstract

    This paper will present some new theories such as biological manufacturing system, the fractal factory theory, holonic manufacturing systems, and multi-agent theory in the context of manufacturing systems. The objective of the paper is to show how these theories can contribute to develop the new concepts that are required for controlling the manufacturing systems of the future. Thereafter it will present the potential for improvement of the manufacturing system by introduction and implementation of these theories. The paper tries to encapsulate the main area of my Ph.D. thesis research which will evolve around the idea of integrating intelligent elements into the control systems of the manufacturing systems. The research will concentrate on integration of manufacturing units by use of intelligent control mechanisms, information technology and the material handling as the key integrators.
