Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9917194A1] A resource handling system (120) has an intelligent software agent-based layer which provides a quasi-centralised control. The system has an interface to a user community and receives resource requests (115). There are multiple agents which negotiate to provide a response. The response can be substantially in real-time, rather than via a planning and scheduling capability, while there is also management of over- and under-bidding by the agents.
