We present in this paper a proposal for using the agent oriented programming paradigm as a tool for modeling agents that represent some of the elements of a real manufacturing cell. The main motivation in using this programming paradigm is that we want to give some kind of flexibility to manufacturing cells by exploiting the speech acts theory over which is based this paradigm.
