Globalization and outsourcing make the concept of Just-In-Time manufacturing a very attractive solution for cutting production costs and bringing new products to the market as early as possible. However, this has a deep impact on traditional production planning. Time-slots at the appropriate production units must be allocated for each manufacturing stage of(More)
Moodle is a license free software platform. All those involved in the business of eLearning also call it as a Learning Management System (LMS), or Virtual Learning Environment (VLE)). Moodle is designed to help educators create online courseware with opportunities for rich interaction. Interactivity is becoming a key facet of eLearning. Moodle logs all(More)
transactional agents towards a robust multi agent system What to say and what to do when mostly your friends love reading? Are you the one that don't have such hobby? So, it's important for you to start having that hobby. You know, reading is not the force. We're sure that reading will lead you to join in better concept of life. Reading will be a positive(More)
Agent technology is a promising solution for coping with the ever-growing complexity of modern information systems involving highly distributed and error-prone information sources. Unfortunately, current prototypes often lack the robustness necessary for real-world deployment. We propose transaction mechanisms as a possible remedy. For this, we divide(More)
The wide availability of mobile devices equipped with wireless communication capabilities together with the technical possibility to form adhoc networks paves the way for building highly dynamic communities of mobile users. An interesting application in such an environment is decentralized peer-to-peer file sharing and exchanging. Locating the required(More)
The wide availability of mobile devices equipped with wireless communication devices paves the way for building highly dynamic communities of ad-hoc networks. For an asynchronous service discovery in this environment, we suggest the use of mobile agents. Here, we concentrate on file sharing and exchanging services. We adopt a new asynchronous approach for(More)
Software agents are the basic building blocks in many software systems especially those based on artificial intelligence methods, e.g., reinforcement learning based multi-agent systems (MASs). However, testing software agents is considered a challenging problem. This is due to the special characteristics of agents which include its autonomy, distributed(More)
