  abstract =     "In the paper we propose a fundamental shift from the
                 present manufacturing concepts and problem solving
                 approaches towards new manufacturing paradigms
                 involving phenomena such as emergence, intelligence,
                 non-determinism, complexity, self-organisation,
                 bottom-up organization, and coexistence with the
                 ecosystem. In the first part of the paper we study the
                 characteristics of the past and the present
                 manufacturing concepts and the problems they caused.
                 According to the analogy with the terms in cognitive
                 psychology four types of problems occurring in complex
                 manufacturing systems are identified. Then,
                 appropriateness of various intelligent systems for
                 solving of these four types of problems is analysed. In
                 the second part of the paper, we study two completely
                 different problems. These two problems are (1)
                 identification of system in metal forming industry and
                 (2) autonomous robot system in manufacturing
                 environment. A genetic-based approach that imitates
                 integration of living cells into tissues, organs, and
                 organisms is used. The paper clearly shows how the
                 state of the stable global order (i.e., the
                 intelligence) of the overall system gradually emerges
                 as a result of low-level interactions between entities
                 of which the system consists and the environment.",
