Secondly, to make supply chain processes more reliable, planning systems have to plan for accomplishing robustness, even when facing significant disturbances. Thirdly, most current systems do not learn from experience to become better over time.

PTAs Intelligent Agents as Personal Trading Assistants for Transactions in Electronic Markets
In the follow-up of the recent advances in telematic services and information technologies, we are currently experiencing a revolution in the way that financial and commodity markets operate. In particular, brokerage agencies have enabled small-scale investors to participate in various marketplaces through Internet: huge parts of the US contracting volume is supported electronically, and Europe will catch up to similar amounts soon. However, the incessant rise of the number of operations realised by investors with limited experience has exceeded the capacity of many agencies to provide expert brokers, who advise investors respecting the most adequate operations for their profile, and who support them during the enactment of market operations.
