Fuzzy Decision Analysis in Negotiation between the System of Systems Agent and the System Agent in an Agent-Based Model

  title={Fuzzy Decision Analysis in Negotiation between the System of Systems Agent and the System Agent in an Agent-Based Model},
  author={Paulette Acheson and Cihan H. Dagli and Nil H. Kilicay-Ergin},
Previous papers have described a computational approach to System of Systems (SoS) development using an Agent-Based Model (ABM). This paper describes the Fuzzy Decision Analysis used in the negotiation between the SoS agent and a System agent in the ABM of an Acknowledged SoS development. An Acknowledged SoS has by definition a limited influence on the development of the individual Systems. The individual Systems have their own priorities, pressures, and agenda which may or may not align with… Expand
A Contract Negotiation Model for Constituent Systems in the Acquisition of Acknowledged System of Systems
A contract negotiation model for constituent systems in the acknowledged SoS acquisition is developed, which consists of a protocol for negotiating multiple interdependent issues of multiple items over multiple stages and a decision framework of constituent systems. Expand
Incentive-Based Negotiation Model for System of Systems Acquisition
An incentive based negotiation model is outlined as a mechanism to increase participation of individual systems into the SoS development and analyses of the results provide insights into how incentives can be used by decision makers to increase Participation in SoS engineering and development.

Multi-stakeholder Dynamic Planning of System of Systems Development and Evolution☆
This paper proposes a decentralized multi-stakeholder decision making framework where local stakeholders conduct acquisition development planning for individual benefits while the SoS-level stakeholder designs a coordination mechanism to facilitate the communication between stakeholders and further achieve a harmonious outcome.

Improving Collaboration in Search and Rescue System of Systems
An incentive based negotiation model is outlined as a mechanism to increase participation of individual systems into the Search and Rescue SoS development that takes into account variations in outcomes due to uncertainty in the acquisition environment as well as contribution of each system to overall SoS mission.
