Studying the goals, ideas and trends of the concept of cybertronic production systems (CTPS) leads to the hypothesis that CTPS supports a sustainable development. The paper proposes an approach for simulating and verifying this hypothesis.

Cybertronic production systems are formed by the application of cybertronic systems (CTS) in production. To examine the behavior of cybertronic systems depending on their level of interconnection, intelligence and independence a multi-agent system of a production system is implemented. This simulation system can be used as virtual test field to evaluate impacts of changes in the production system on all level of detail (process, machine tool, factory level) by using sustainability indicators on factory level.
