Multi-agent architecture allows us to develop decentralized and autonomous systems. This approach provides the flexibility and modularity but the problem appears to adapt and re-configuration of your system. In the context of Industry 4.0 [ISO/IEC/IEEE 42010:2011. Systems and software engineering -- Architecture description. [Internet]. Available from:] there are many examples of the complex behaviour of large systems which consist from agents. Agent-based approach for industrial internet architecture allows to perform complex behaviour and make predictions about how other components of the system will work. This paper provides an overview of some principles that can be used to develop multi-agent systems in case of Industrial Internet architecture.
