This paper describes a generic coordination methodology applied to the field of manufacturing engineering. The objective of the coordination mechanism with respect to this application is twofold. Firstly, it is shown that utilising the developed system can result in the efficient organisation of processes leading to an optimum time taken to manufacture a number of artefacts. Secondly, successful operation of the system in this environment will demonstrate that the methodology is generic in nature. The significant results already achieved using this system within a computational analysis environment supports this fact.
