This paper reviews creation principles for unmanned robot-based manufacturings consisting of the robotized machining centers (RMC). The tasks of product manufacturing arrive at the input of unmanned robot-based manufacturing; these tasks are presented as graph of operations for processing by various RMC. Automatic dispatcher controls unmanned robot-based manufacturing; its functions include automated scheduling of incoming tasks execution in minimal time. General formal task description for dispatching of unmanned robot-based manufacturing when tasks arrive at arbitrary point of time is given. Paper suggests dispatching method for unmanned robot-based manufacturing by software agents of two types: RMC agent acting on behalf of certain RMC during dispatching and task agents serving as client represantatives.
