New architectures of manufacturing systems nave been proposed aiming at realizing more flexible control structures of manufacturing systems, which can cope with dynamic changes in volume and variety of products, and also with unscheduled disruptions. They are so called as autonomous distributed manufacturing systems, random manufacturing systems, biological manufacturing systems, and holonic manufacturing systems. The objective of the present research is to develop an integrated process planning and scheduling system, which is applicable to the holonic manufacturing systems (HMS). A basic architecture and systematic methods are proposed to determine suitable sequences of machining equipment needed to manufacture the products and suitable production schedules for the machining equipment in the HMS. Procedures are developed to select suitable sequences of machining equipment for individual products, and to determine suitable production schendules of machining equipment based on the process plans of the products.
