A Process Model for the Design of Multi-Agent Systems
In this paper, we propose a pragmatic process model for the development of multi-agent system based on the combination of standard software engineering techniques with a special focus on multi-agent systems. The resulting process model is the attempt to make our experience in the design of multi-agent systems available to other system designers. The approach presented in this paper has evolved over several years and it has been successfully applied and refined in different types of multi-agent systems. A short case study of our latest project is included in the paper.
