Terra Incognita se ha configurado como un Libro Blanco que pretende identificar tendencias y reflexionar sobre las diferentes concepciones y prácticas de la investigación no disciplinar en nuestro entorno académico (el Sistema Español de Ciencia y Tecnología). Esta es una transición que implica un cierto cambio de paradigma, muy alineado con la inv...
Chapter
This work presents the bases of a managed market, “Lonja”, using combinatorial auctions. This is used to purchase products made with 3D printing (additive manufacturing technologies). In this market, the organization and coordination of collaborative offers will be facilitated between the customers that will receive the bids from the manufacturers...

This paper presents a novel algorithm to solve the multi-project scheduling problem with resource constraints (RCMPSP). The algorithm was tested with all the problems proposed in the multi-project scheduling problem library, which is the main reference to benchmark RCMPSP algorithms. Our analysis of the results demonstrates that this algorithm, in...
Chapter
The importance of knowledge sharing to a company is such that it can, to a large extent, determine the success or failure of the competitiveness and survival of the organisation. One of the problems facing the management of knowledge, to ensure its application in the company, is the existence of barriers or impediments to effective exchange. Some o...

El mundo científico ha generado diversas visiones correspondientes a las funciones y flujos que se producen dentro de los almacenes vinculados a procesos de aprovisionamiento o distribución en la cadena de suministro. Algunos de ellos son demasiado exhaustivos y otros en exceso sintéticos. Este trabajo pretende hacer un estudio de los mismos, y apo...
Chapter
The objective of this work is to study “The New Industrial Organization” (Hernández 1997) and its implications for knowledge, cooperative relations and business innovation. This objective implies understanding the close and meaningful connection between Economics, Business Organization and Strategic Management. In doing so, we point out that two in...
Chapter
Economic Activity takes two alternative forms: the Market and the Firm. Economics is a social science that tries to explain how to generate wealth and how it is distributed. The firm is a social organization whose members decide to cooperate to generate wealth and its distribution among the stakeholders. They certainly share a common goal. However,...
Chapter
In the last 40 years, the very idea of ethnicity has evolved from a static and essentialist classification of human groups according to their immutable “nature” to a relational frame of reference used by groups of people to consider themselves “similar” or to be explicitly differentiated by others. Nevertheless, the growing importance of variabilit...

Holonic Manufacturing Systems are a new manufacturing paradigm. They are included into distributed methodologies and propose new manufacturing management schemes that combine self-organization, dynamic hierarchies and horizontal relationships. This approach is closer to manufacturing system nature than centralized or strictly traditional hierarchic...

We design and test a multiagent-based knowledge-exchange network, the results of which will guide corporate decision-making in this field. Its novelty resides in the application of multiagents to the field of knowledge management. We selected this methodology because it is valid for the purpose of the study, because it generates realistic and pract...

Los métodos de programación de operaciones tradicionales, estáticos y basados en arquitecturas centralizadas o jerárquicas, no son suficientemente flexibles para adaptarse al dinamismo y complejidad de los sistemas de fabricación actuales. Por ello, la investigación en técnicas dinámicas de programación y control on-line está creciendo rápidamente....
Article
The traditional static scheduling methods, based on hierarchical and centralized architectures, are not flexible enough to self-adapt to the dynamism and complexity of today's manufacturing systems. For this reason, new proposals to improve the scheduling and control of agile manufacturing systems constantly appear. The auction based allocation met...

In this paper, we propose an agent based model that describes the spatial and temporal evolution of an industry composed of a set of heterogeneous firms distributed in different regions. The model formalizes a particular hypothesis about spatial agglomeration and industrial concentration phenomena in which innovation occupies the central place of e...

Combinatorial auctions are used as a distributed coordination mechanism in Multiagent Systems. The use of combinatorial auctions as negotiation and coordination mechanism is especially appropriate in systems with interdependencies and complementarities such as manufacturing scheduling systems. In this work we review some updating price mechanisms f...

In this work we use the paradigm of multiagent systems to solve the Job Shop problem. Job Shop problem is a particular problem of scheduling in which we try to find an schedule that optimize a objective and is subject to certain constraints. We propose a combinatorial auction mechanism to coordinate agents. The “items” to be sold are the time slots...

We use the paradigm of multiagent systems to solve the Job Shop problem. It concerns the allocation of machines to operations of some production process over time periods and its goal is the optimization of one or several objectives. We propose a combinatorial auction mechanism to coordinate agents. The “items” to be sold are the time slots that we...

Knowledge and proximity are key concepts in the Geography of Innovation literature (Boschma, 2005). Innovating processes are uncertain because they often take place under unsure conditions and fierce business competitiveness. Geographical proximity can reduce this uncertainty since it potentially facilitates labor movement and knowledge interchange...

Reviewing the Geography of Innovation literature about Knowledge Spillovers phenomena we find the idea that knowledge externalities spring from an interactive learning process between agents. Learning by personal contacts does not only require a geographical closeness, but also cognitive proximity that makes possible understanding and social proxim...
