An Agents' Model Using Ontologies and Web Services for Creating and Managing Virtual Enterprises

Mahmoud Brahimi
2019 International Journal of Computing and Digital Systems  
The present paper proposes a virtual enterprise model based on the use of agents endorsed by the use of ontologies and web services.  ...  Thereby, virtual enterprises concept imposes itself and overcomes geographical constraints by allowing companies to cooperate and address their shortcomings through exchanging their services and skills  ...  Due to these positive arguments in favour of the use of multi agent systems, many works are proposed using agent paradigm for creating and managing virtual enterprises.  ...

PAMS – A New Collaborative Framework for Agent-Based Simulation of Complex Systems [chapter]

Trong Khanh Nguyen, Nicolas Marilleau, Tuong Vinh Ho
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Agent-based simulations are powerful tools for studying complex systems. In this context, we develop a collaborative platform dedicated to agent-based simulation (PAMS).  ...  The current version of PAMS is based technologies coming from distributed systems. Today PAMS has been designed to support major agent based simulation frameworks.  ...  The platforms supporting such work are referred to as Virtual Research Environments (VRE) [13] . VRE systems are still relatively undeveloped.  ...

Agent-Based Contracting in Virtual Enterprises [chapter]

Claudia Cevenini, Giuseppe Contissa, Migle Laukyte
2007 Establishing the Foundation of Collaborative Networks  
Virtual Enterprises (VEs) use software agents (SAs) to reduce costs, speed up operations, and increase efficiency and competitiveness.  ...  Agents can carry out negotiations and make contracts without any human intervention. This makes them useful both in negotiations to set up a VE and in contracting with VE partners.  ...  (Matskin, 2001) present and (Petersen, 2003) propose to apply AGORA multi-agent architecture which is the example of VE formation using SAs.  ...
