Introduction

Many environments, such as manufacturing, involve multiple machines, multiple robot systems, and(or) multiple computer systems. Each of these systems is capable of performing specific operations which might overlap with other systems’ capabilities. All of these systems, even though they belong to different environments, are related to one common class, multi-machine systems. Multi-machine systems, in general, act in some form of parallelism to achieve specific goals. The performance of such systems is measured by certain criteria such as the system throughput. However, ...
