We present an approach to traffic system-based factory physics principles and agent-based simulation. We consider a network with workstations (intersections), jobs (vehicles) and connections (roads) between workstations. We use two models. The first one computes the optimal time for the traffic signals in the system based on batching. The second one allows to be controlling the system behavior changing the last optimal time based in flow priorities. Both models are based on density, flow, utilization, speed, vehicle types, and others traffic system’s variable. These models are involved in a multi agent-based simulation model to represent the interactions between the agents in the system. The agents are the vehicles, the traffic lights, and a central-coordinator agent. The performance of the traffic variables in a Bogota's principal way was studied using our approach in a simulation software. We present the main results about cycle times and average speed of vehicles in the system.
