Abstract
This paper proposes a methodology for applying simulation technology to the monitoring and control of operations, focusing on the roles of intelligent agents. These agents monitor the course of the real operation and compare it with a near-real-time simulation of that operation. When these agents detect significant differences between the planned operation and the real operation they explore the discrepancies to determine if they impact on the desired outcome of the operation. When necessary, these agents launch additional simulations or other tools to make this determination. In cases in which the success of the plan is threatened, the agents advise the decision-maker. This paper focuses on the interactions between the agents and how they collaborate with each other in a hierarchy.
