Design criteria for distributed and pervasive intelligent systems, such as Multi Agent Systems (MAS), are generally led by the functional decomposition of the given application-dependent knowledge. Consequently, changes either in the problem semantics or in the granularity level description may have a significant impact on the overall system re-engineering process. In order to tackle better these issues, a novel framework called Hierarchical-Granularity Holonic Model (HGHM) is introduced as a…
