ABSTRACT One approach for automating industrial processes is a Distributed Control System (DCS) based on a hierarchical architecture.
In this hierarchy, each level is characterized by a group of different tasks to be carried out within the control system and
by using and generating different information. In this article, a reference model for the development of Intelligent Distributed
Control Systems based on Agents (IDCSA) inspired by this hierarchical architecture is presented. The agents of this model
are classified in two categories: control agents and service management environment agents. To define these agents we have
used an extension of the MAS-Common KADS methodology for Multi-Agent Systems (MAS).
