Achieving Business Process Agility in Engineering Change Management with Agent Technology

Giovanni Rimassa, Birgit Burmeister
2007 Workshop From Objects to Agents  
This paper presents an approach to business process management, which leverages Agent Technology features to obtain agile business process behavior.  ...  The importance of business processes for a successful enterprise cannot be overestimated. They are core assets through which a business turns its potential into actual competitiveness on the market.  ...  The technological leverage of Agent Technology, together with the combined concepts of goal-and contextorientation as well as Autonomic Computing, allow the conception and realization of an advanced BPM  ...

Making a strong business case for multiagent technology

Steve S. Benfield, Jim Hendrickson, Daniel Galanti
2006 Proceedings of the fifth international joint conference on Autonomous agents and multiagent systems - AAMAS '06  
Most notably we discuss gains in programmer productivity achieved by using AdaptivEnterprise, a commercial IDE and J2EE runtime engine based on BDI agents.  ...  In addition, the agent approach allowed the business to change and extend solutions quickly and helped bridge the gap between the business side and IT development.  ...  DESIGNING WITH AGENTS IS EASIER FOR BUSINESS ANALYSTS How do you take a business process and map it into software?  ...

Validation of Agile Workflows Using Simulation [chapter]

Kai Jander, Lars Braubach, Alexander Pokahr, Winfried Lamersdorf
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Increasing automation of business processes and industrial demand for complex workflow features have led to the development of more flexible and agile workflow concepts.  ...  One of those concepts is the use of goal-oriented workflows, which rely on ideas derived from agent technology like describing the workflows based on a goal hierarchy.  ...  Acknowledgement: We would like to thank the DFG for supporting the technology transfer project Go4Flex.  ...

Building a Software Architecture out of User Stories and BDD Scenarios: Research Agenda

Samedi Heng, Monique Snoeck, Konstantinos Tsilionis
2022 International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering  
Research has shown that functions of different nature defined in US and BDD instances do represent an interesting input to define a software architecture within Agent-and Object-Oriented (AO and OO) languages  ...  These abstractions mimic human behavior at software runtime making the development process easier and understandable by human beings.  ...  For the agent architecture, we provided the tranformation for both Belief-Desire-Intention (BDI [3] ) agent (using JaCaMo [4] ) and none-BDI agent (using JADE [5] ).  ...

Luca Sabatucci, Patrizia Ribino, Carmelo Lodato, Salvatore Lopes, Massimo Cossentino
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose a language for describing system goals that may be injected at run-time into the system.  ...  The novelty of our approach consists in decoupling the business goals (what is expected) and their implementation (how to address the desired behavior).  ...  In [34] , the authors propose an approach to business process management based on BDI agent technology to realize agile processes (i.e. flexible and able to proactively adapt themselves).  ...
