Towards industrially applicable modeling technique for agent-based systems Conference Paper uri icon


  • In recent years, researchers and practitioners have both recognized the advantages of agent- based systems. Yet, the number of deployed commercial agent-based applications is small. As suggested by [3], one of the reasons for this is the lack of industrial methodologies for the development of agent-based applications. That study further claims that the development of agent-oriented modeling techniques was done mostly ad-hoc and not as a core technology. According to [2], Agent-Oriented Software Engineering (AOSE) is a key factor for introducing agent-based systems to the industry as an engineering approach. Following this line of thought, a recent study [5] presents an evaluation of leading agent modeling techniques. There, it was suggested that those techniques adequately address major agent-based system attributes, however, they only partly support software engineering development …
