2019 arXiv   pre-print
Thus, we present a case study that is related to dynamic simulation of an automatic inventory management system. We provide two types of agents, the clients, and the seller agents.  ...  This case study MAS uses BDI and FIPA-ACL in its implementation resulting in a clear simulation of the system. We expect to provide a comparison between two distinct situations.  ...  Additionally, the provided inventory management case study is done by applying introduced concepts in NetLogo.
