High degree of complexity of processes connected with compound chains of operations requires search for new models and methods. Moreover, one should take into account possibilities of presence of undesired situations, called crises, when system functions in real conditions. The aim of the work is to create a model of a system based on application of agents, which manages a process of realization of chains of operations (either a "matter" to be processed or production process) and its structure in such a way that it is possible to syn chronise the model by real process. In the paper, a concept of multiagent system solving this problem, concerning potential crisis situations, as well as prototype realisation for a sample application have been shown.
