This paper delivers the results of the research work targeted at communications in a manufacturing system. A computer agent-based model which simulates manufacturing system functioning has been engineered. The system lifecycle consists of two recursively repeated stages: a communication stage and a production stage. Model data sets were estimated with the static Leontief’s equilibrium equation usage. In experiments relationships between the manufacturing system lifecycle time and conditions of equilibrium violations have been identified. The research results are to be used to propose violation negative influence compensation methods.
