This article describes how an IPS2 network should be build up by considering the dynamic behavior of the IPS2 along its lifecycle. How the network partner could participate and how they allocate their capacities will be also discussed as questions regarding the commissioning while considering the business model. The realization of this concept is based on a multi-agent system. Therefore all objects involved in the IPS2 operation phase like tangible product shares, network partners and service technicians are represented by software agents. All this will be pointed out by an availability oriented maintenance scenario in the field of micro production. © 2010 CIRP.
