The goal of this paper is to introduce an information system management model dedicated to the industrial maintenance and represented by an "intelligent" data base where autonomous agents will transform information to strategic knowledge referring to space-time. Their first role is to allow through a “reversed feedback” to analyze information in entry of the system and to propose a control ensuring system protection against not representative or erroneous information. Their second role is to make it possible to propose at exit strongly correlated strategic variables regroupings and through these last the management tasks regrouping per "management categories". Lastly, we will describe the information system which we called CONRAD and the autonomous agents that we called ConWorm, dedicated to the task of transformation and control.
