Supporting conflict resolution in cooperative design systems

M. Klein
1991 IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man and Cybernetics  
This paper describes this conflict resolution model and provides examples of its operation from an implemented cooperative design system for local area network design that uses machinebased design agents  ...  How this model is being extended to support and learn from collaboration of human design agents is also discussed.  ...  While the model was initially realized in a context of solely machine-based design agents, it is currently being extended to support and learn from the collaboration of both human and machine-based agents  ...

Agents in computer-assisted collaborative design [chapter]

Divine T. Ndumu, Joseph M. H. Tah
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We argue that the agent-based approach provides a useful metaphor for reasoning about design systems, as well as contributing new tools and techniques for facilitating the collaborative design process.  ...  For researchers working at the boundary between artificial intelligence and engineering design, the notion of "agents" working in a collaborative manner to assist the design effort is not new.  ...  Acknowledgment The authors work like to acknowledge the help of the members of the Intelligent Systems Research group in producing this paper. Special thanks to Hyacinth Nwana and Jaron Collis.  ...

An Application of the Theory of Collaborative Design to Intelligent Environments

Jaewook Lee
2009 Journal of Asian Architecture and Building Engineering  
In contrast to the current approach, which is based on a systems theory, the method here looks to a collaborative design as a model: it views the modification of settings in Intelligent Environments as  ...  a dynamic, collaborative design activity akin to the work of a human design team.  ...  Acknowledgements The author would like to express his appreciation to Professors Yehuda Kalay, Galen Cranz, and Alice Agogino at the University of California at Berkeley for their support and contribution  ...

Supporting conflict management in cooperative design teams

Mark Klein
1993 Group Decision and Negotiation  
This paper describes a system called DCSS (the Design Collaboration Support System) developed to meet this challenge in design teams with both human and machine-based agents.  ...  The design of complex artifacts has increasingly become a cooperative process, with the detection and resolution of conflicts between design agents playing a central role.  ...  The extended shell, called DCSS (the Design Collaboration Support System), has been used successfully to support cooperative LAN design with human and machine-based design agents.  ...

Novel Agent Based-approach for Industrial Diagnosis: A Combined use Between Case-based Reasoning and Similarity Measure

Fatima Zohra Benkaddour, Noria Taghezout, Bouabdellah Ascar
2016 International Journal of Interactive Multimedia and Artificial Intelligence  
In this paper, we propose a new approach integrating an agentbased modelling with case-based reasoning that utilizes similarity measures and preferences module.  ...  The experimentation shows that the suggested agent-based approach is very interesting and efficient for operators and experts who collaborate in INOTIS enterprise.  ...  This system was based on a collaborative decision making process that exploits the represented knowledge in domain ontology and uses a case-based reasoning.  ...

3D Simulation of Environmental Conflict Resolution in Intelligent Environments

Jae-Wook Lee
2012 Architectural research  
The objective of this study is to present types of environmental conflicts and their resolution through agent collaboration and negotiation.  ...  For the demonstration and validation of the conflict resolution process, a set of hypothetical test cases is simulated in a 3D test environment.  ...  Also worth mentioning is that the test case simulated in this study do not include the control process by the Environment Monitoring Agent (EMA), the highest level agent of the test model.  ...

2014 arXiv   pre-print
This paper focuses on some of the key intelligent techniques for conflict resolution in Multi-Agent Decision Support Systems.  ...  Technique uses a case-based reasoning approach for negotiations in which agents make offers based on similarity of the negotiation context (including issues, opponents, and environment) to previous negotiations  ...  When agents need to decide, they try to find the most favourable offer and if the proposal is rejected then the agents update their knowledge. 2) Case-Based Reasoning Based Technique: Case-Based Reasoning  ...
