rganizational structures supported by agent-oriented methodologies

  author={avid Isern and David S{\'a}nchez and Antonio Moreno},
Agent technology is a software paradigm that permits to implement large and complex distributed applications. In order to assist the development of multi-agent systems, agent-oriented methodologies (AOM) have been created in the last years to support modelling more and more complex applications. Even though agents are perceived as autonomous entities that act according to some objectives, they are also members of a society, and have to exchange information with other agents and maintain some 
A new approach of designing Multi-Agent Systems
This work has tried to present a practical application of a generic and scalable method of a MAS with a component-oriented architecture and agent-based approach that allows MDA to generate source code from a given model.
A metamodeling approach for the identification of organizational smells in multi-agent systems: application to ASPECS
Early and automatic detection of design smells applied to multi-agent systems models based on the organizational approach, named Organizational Design Smells (ODS) allows reducing the costs and development times, while increasing the final product’s quality.


Methodologies for Developing Multi-Agent Systems
An overall look at representative agent-oriented methodologies by considering how they support specific agent-related concepts is taken, to identify areas in which this technology has shown its potential to solve new problems.
Engineering JADE Agents with the Gaia Methodology
This paper presents a kind of roadmap of how one can combine the Gaia methodology for agent-oriented analysis and design and JADE, a FIPA compliant agent development framework, for an easier analysis, design and implementation of multi-agent systems.
Comparing Agent-Oriented Methodologies
A comparison of three prominent agent- oriented methodologies: MaSE, Prometheus and Tropos is presented based upon an attribute-based framework which addresses four major areas: concepts, modelling language, process and pragmatics.
A Framework for Evaluating Agent-Oriented Methodologies
A framework for evaluating and comparing agent-oriented methodologies focuses on four major aspects of a methodology: concepts and properties, notations and modelling techniques, process and pragmatics, and the strengths and weaknesses of GAIA.
Multi-Agent Systems as Computational Organizations: The Gaia Methodology
This chapter identifies the appropriate organizational abstractions that are central to the analysis and design of such systems, discuss their role and importance, and show how such abstractions are exploited in the context of the Gaia methodology for multi-agent systems development.
Multiagent Systems Engineering
MaSE uses a number of graphically based models to describe system goals, behaviors, agent types, and agent communication interfaces and provides a way to specify architecture-independent detailed definition of the internal agent design.
A Survey of Agent-Oriented Methodologies
The current agent-oriented methodologies are introduced and what approaches have been followed, the suitability of these approaches for agent modelling, and some conclusions drawn from the survey are discussed.
Formal Specification and Prototyping of Multi-agent Systems
This paper presents a multi agent-oriented prototyping approach based on a multi-formalism approach that allows for a simple description of both individual and collective multi-agent system aspects.
MOISE: An Organizational Model for Multi-agent Systems
This paper proposes an organizational model for a multiagent system. This model is based on three major concepts: the roles which constrain the individual behaviors of the agents, the organizational
From Agents to Organizations: An Organizational View of Multi-agent Systems
This paper proposes a very concise and minimal OCMAS model called AGR, for Agent/Group/Role, and proposes a set of notations and a methodological framework to help the designer to build MAS using AGR.
