  title={Ontological Foundations of Multi-agent Framework for Organizational Diagnosis},
  author={Tatiana Poletaeva and Habib Abdulrab and Eduard A. Babkin},
In order to support management functions in dynamically changing corporate enterprises, adequate information systems need to be built, automating desirable adaptation of inter- and intra- organizational business processes. This paper therefore introduces a new approach to the design of multi-agent information systems meant for planning, discovering, monitoring deviations, and optimizing business processes. Expected qualitative breakthrough in the system’s capacity is based on the matching of…
