The identification of the holons is a critical task in the development of holonic manufacturing control system applications. This paper discusses a methodology to develop distributed manufacturing control systems for the shop floor level, based on the ADACOR holonic architecture. The methodology comprises a set of steps, the more relevant being the identification of the manufacturing holons and the development of holons based on re-use libraries supported by the ADACOR approach. The paper focus on the first step and describes a procedure to identify the holons present in a manufacturing system.
