A Multi-Agent Approach towards Group Scheduling
Thanks to rapid improvements in computer and communication technology the network of national and international business relationships is becoming more and more dense. Intelligent cooperation mechanisms are a necessary prerequisite for efficient cooperation. This report examines an everyday cooperative scenario, scheduling and management of appointments, from the point of intelligent computer support. The example is chosen to clarify our approach towards a formal model to describe cooperative processes. It shows the suitability of the approach to quickly design and implement typical cooperative scenarios. Especially, the integration of different existing calendar tools within the general cooperation model provides a clear advantage over existing approaches.
