In today’s customized mass production the detailed and accurate production information is more important than ever. The Manufacturing Execution System (MES) implemented on the shop-floor level is capable of providing this information. In semi-automated manufacturing the workers should enter (in time) the proper data into the MES, however, unexpected delays, breakdowns of machines, missing personnel or other resources are not - or not appropriately - reported to the MES. Therefore, in order to analyze and address these issues, a multi-agent simulation and test environment is presented in the paper, which simulates the interactions between the MES, the workers and the managers. In this environment a new business process flow, the effects of disturbances or new tracking algorithms can be evaluated.
