The evolution of manufacturing technologies allowing for rapid prototype development, easy transfer of ideas from design to production even at the convenience of your home-office (i.e., through the use of 3D printers), and an unstable market environment, call for novel solutions in manufacturing, allowing high adaptability and responsiveness. The use of smart, agent-based systems empowered by semantic technologies could provide the solution. In this paper, we present an ontology-based smart production system based on the use of agents. Both the architecture of the system, as well as the framework for deployment under a living lab environment are presented. We give special focus to the alleviation of obstacles met in the small-series-like ramp-up of highly customized products, such as aircraft.
