Abstract : Product-driven systems PDS may enable manufacturing companies to meet business demands more quickly and effectively, by localizing decision as near as possible to the material flows. However, the actual architecture of a PDS is still not well defined. This paper proposes a PDS architecture based on a particular interpretation of the concept of stigmergy, where cooperation between production actors is achieved thanks to attributes informational pheromones attached to products. This stigmergic design pattern is presented. Agent-oriented components which implement it are presented, are firstly applied to a laboratory platform, and secondly on an industrial test-case.
