Abstract: Modern manufacturing enterprises are steadily moving towards open architectures wherein manufacturing activities are integrated with the activities of suppliers, customers, and partners within complex supply chains. Agent-based technology provides a natural way to design and implement such integration. We model the supply chain as a directed graph in which the vertices represent computers or individual agents and edges represent links. Thus the problem of enhancing the efficiency of mobile agents reduces to the problem of finding resource-constrained extremal paths in the graph. We study ε-approximation algorithms for solving the considered problems. We suggest a general three-stage technique, which follows and extends an earlier computational scheme in the literature for the constrained path problems (CPP). The new technique essentially improves on several earlier algorithms and also provides new aproach for contructing FPTAS for the CPP.
