An Architectural Strategy for Self-Adapting Systems

Danny Weyns, Tom Holvoet
2007 International Workshop on Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems (SEAMS '07)  
Self-adaptation is the ability of a software system to adapt to dynamic and changing operating conditions autonomously. In this paper, we present an architectural strategy for self-adapting systems.  ...  The architectural strategy for self-adapting systems structures the software into a number of interacting autonomous entities (agents) that are situated in an environment.  ...  A reference architecture serves as a blueprint for developing software architectures for a family of applications with specific functionality and quality attribute requirements.  ...

Applying Multi-agent Concepts to Dynamic Plug-In Architectures [chapter]

Lawrence Cabac, Michael Duvigneau, Daniel Moldt, Heiko Rölke
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
By transferring the concepts of agentorientation to a plug-in-based architecture we are able to design our application and the plug-in-based system on an abstract level.  ...  Moreover, general problems that evolve from a highly dynamic and configurable architecture have been solved by basing the conceptual design on multi-agent principles.  ...  We have shown in this section that a concept model for a dynamic plug-in system architecture can be developed on the basis of multi-agent principles.  ...

A Reference Architecture Capturing Structure and Behaviour of Warehouse Control [chapter]

Jacques Verriet, Bruno van Wijngaarden
2011 Automation in Warehouse Development  
We present a reference architecture that supports the development of warehouse management and control systems.  ...  These delivery requirements are often very specific for a group of customers, which makes it hard to reuse warehouse management and control functionality for other warehouses.  ...  Many applications of decentralised control systems are very specific for the application. However, a few reference architectures have been proposed for decentralised control systems.  ...

An Axiomatic Design of a Multiagent Reconfigurable Mechatronic System Architecture

Amro M. Farid, Luis Ribeiro
2015 IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics  
To our knowledge, this paper is the first multi-agent system reference architecture for reconfigurable manufacturing systems driven by a quantitative and formal design approach.  ...  Amongst the barriers to adoption has been the relative absence of formal and quantitative multi-agent system design methodologies based upon reconfigurability measurement.  ...  Therefore, a specific instantiated physical system need not occur prior to the development of a MAS agent architecture either at the reference of system-specific levels. A.  ...

Web services enterprise security architecture

Carlos Gutiérrez, Eduardo Fernández-Medina, Mario Piattini
2005 Proceedings of the 2005 workshop on Secure web services - SWS '05  
Such a process should facilitate developers in the activities of web service-specific security requirements specification, web services-based security architecture design and web services security standards  ...  Despite of this growing, there's not exist yet a process that guides developers in the critical task of integrating security within all the stages of the development's life cycle of WS-based software.  ...  At present, there is still a lack of a global approach that offers a methodical development for constructing security architectures for WS-based systems.  ...
