The applications of multi-agent systems (MAS) are growing increasingly in the industrial field due to the advantages inherent to their characteristics and properties, the use of distributed automation architectures, which have satisfactorily solved control problems that its complexity and dynamic behavior have not been properly resolved with other approaches under these conditions, intelligent agents must meet the requirements of current automation systems, such as autonomy, flexibility, reconfiguration, in concurrent and collaborative systems, which traditionally do not have been designed to satisfy these characteristics. In the present work, a distributed architecture is proposed for the design of an intelligent agent in a Human-Machine Interface (HMI) for the supervision of the filtering stage of a water purification plant, characterized by the ability to collaborate with the other agents that make up the entire plant. For the projection and design of the system, the Unified Modeling Language (UML) and Petri nets (PN) are used for the simulation and validation of the system, and the implementation of the agent from macros in C language, starting from a methodology of multi-agent design that is applied in this document. The implementation of the intelligent agent in an HMI associated with multi-agent architecture, which allowed to evaluate its behavior through the analysis of the properties of the PN and experimental tests, demonstrating the correct operation of the device, response times and its dynamic behavior based on of the functional requirements of the water purification plant and comparisons with similar works.
