class scml.scml2019.factory_managers.FactoryManager(name=None, simulator_type: str | Type[scml.scml2019.simulators.FactorySimulator] = FastFactorySimulator)[source]

Bases: scml.scml2019.agent.SCML2019Agent, abc.ABC

Base factory manager class that will be inherited by participant negmas in ANAC 2019.

The agent can access the world simulation in one of two ways:

  1. Attributes and methods available in the Agent-SCML2020World-Interface (See SCMLAWI documentation for those).

  2. Attributes and methods in the FactoryManager object itself. All factory managers will have the following attributes and methods that simplify the interaction with the world simulation. Some of these attributes/methods are convenient ways to access functionality already available in the agent’s internal SCMLAWI.

Attributes

Agent information

  • id : The unique ID assigned to this agent. This is unique system-wide and is what is used in contracts, CFPs, etc.

  • name: A name of the agent used for display purposes only. The simulator never accesses or uses this name except in printing and logging.

  • uuid : Another name of the id .

  • type_name : A string giving the type of the agent (as a fully qualified python class name).

Capabilities/Profiles

  • line_profiles : A mapping specifying for each line index, all the profiles that can be run on it

  • process_profiles : A mapping specifying for each Process index, all the profiles used to run it in the factory

  • producing : Mapping from a product index to all manufacturing processes that can generate it

  • consuming : Mapping from a product index to all manufacturing processes that can consume it

  • compiled_profiles : All the profiles to be used by the factory belonging to this agent compiled to use process indices

  • max_storage : Maximum storage available to the agent. Zero, None or float(‘inf’) all indicate unlimited storage.

Production Graph (also accessible through awi)

  • products : List of products in the system

  • processes : List of processes in the system

Helper Objects

  • awi : The SCMLAWI instance assigned to this agent. It can be used to interact with the simulation (See SCMLAWI documentation).

  • simulator : A FactorySimulator object that can be used to simulate what happens in the Factory assigned to this agent when given operations are conducted (e.g. production, paying money, etc).

Negotiations/Contracts

  • requested_negotiations : A dynamic list of negotiations currently requested by the agent but not started. Correct management of this list is only possible if the agent **always* uses request_negotiation method of this class (see methods later) rather than directly calling request_method on the SCMLAWI ( awi ) member.

  • running_negotiations : A dynamic list of negotiations currently running involving this agent. Correct management of this list is only possible if the agent **always* uses request_negotiation method of this class (see methods later) rather than directly calling request_method on the SCMLAWI ( awi ) member.

  • unsigned_contracts : A dynamic list of negotiations contracts concluded involving this agent but not yet signed. Correct management of this list is only possible if the agent **always* uses request_negotiation method of this class (see methods later) rather than directly calling request_method on the SCMLAWI ( awi ) member.

Simulation attributes (also accessible through awi)

Methods (Callable by the agent)

Actions on the world

Scheduling and simulation helpers

  • can_expect_agreement : Checks if it is possible in principle to get an agreement on this CFP by the time it becomes executable.

Callbacks (Callable by the simulation)

Decision callbacks (Called to make decisions)

  • Negotiation and Contracts

    • respond_to_negotiation_request : Decide whether or not to engage in a negotiation on a CFP that was published earlier by this factory manager. If accepted, the agent should return a SAONegotiator object.

    • sign_contract : Decide whether or not to sign the contract. If accepted, the agent should return its own ID.

    • confirm_contract_execution : Decide whether or not to go on with executing a contract that the agent already signed. If rejected (by returning False ), a refusal-to-execute breach will be recorded.

  • Breach related

    • confirm_partial_execution : Decide whether the agent agrees to partial execution. Called only when the the partner of this agent commits a partial breach (of level < 1) and this agent commits no breaches.

    • set_renegotiation_agenda : Decide what are the issues and ranges of acceptable values to re-negotiate about. Called only in case of breaches.

    • respond_to_renegotiation_request : Decide whether or not to engage in a re-negotiation.

  • Financial

    • confirm_loan : Decide whether or not to accept an offered loan. *In ANAC 2019 league, loans are not allowed and this callback will never be called by the simulator.

Time-dependent callbacks (Information callback called at predefined times)

  • init : Called once before any production or negotiations to initiate the agent.

  • step : Called at every production step.

Information callbacks (Called to inform the agent about events)

  • CFP related

    • on_new_cfp : Called whenever a CFP on a Product for which the agent has already registered interest (using register_interest method of its awi) is published. By default all agents register interest in the products they can consume or produce according to their profiles.

    • on_remove_cfp : Called whenever a CFP on a Product for which the agent has already registered interest (using register_interest method of its awi) is removed from the bulletin-board.

  • Negotiation related

  • Contract related

    • on_contract_cancelled : Called whenever a Contract of which the agent is a party is cancelled because the other party refused to sign it.

    • on_contract_signed : Called whenever a Contract of which the agent is a party is signed by both patners.

    • on_contract_nullified : Called whenever a Contract of which the agent is a party is nullified by the simulator as a part of bankruptcy processing.

    • on_contract_executed : Called when a contract executes completely and successfully.

    • on_contract_breached : Called when a contract is breached after complete contract processing.

  • Production and factory related

    • on_production_failure : Called whenever a scheduled production (see SCMLAWI for production commands) fails

    • on_inventory_change : Called whenever there is a change in the inventory (something is moved in or out or out of storage due to an event other than production (e.g. contract execution).

    • on_cash_transfer : Called whenever cash is transferred to or from the factory’s wallet.

  • About other agents

transportation_delay = 0

init_()[source]

The initialization function called by the world directly.

It does the following actions by default:

  1. copies some of the static world settings to the agent to make them available without calling the AWI.

  2. prepares production related properties like producing, consuming, line_profiles, compiled_profiles, etc.

  3. registers interest in all products that the agent can produce or consume in its factory.

  4. finally it calls any custom initialization logic implemented in `init`()
