Zooming Multi-Agent Systems [chapter]

Ambra Molesini, Andrea Omicini, Alessandro Ricci, Enrico Denti
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we first advocate the need for zooming mechanisms, promoting a coherent and consistent multi-layered view of agent systems.  ...  Finally, we present a simple case study where the enhanced agent-oriented methodology (SODA+zoom) is exploited and put to the test.  ...  The SODA methodology in short SODA is a methodology for the analysis and design of agent-based systems.  ...

Environment in agent-oriented software engineering methodologies

Ambra Molesini, Andrea Omicini, Mirko Viroli, Danny Weyns, Andrea Omicini
2009 Multiagent and Grid Systems  
The key role of environment as a first-class abstraction in the engineering of MAS (multi-agent systems) is today generally acknowledged in the MAS community.  ...  In this paper we first review, classify and compare existing AOSE methodologies according to their support for the notion of MAS environment.  ...  In the design phase the Infrastructure Model makes use of the design models from two existing methodologies: SODA [27] and Gaia [50] .  ...

ANTHONY KARAGEORGOS, NIKOLAY MEHANDJIEV, SIMON THOMPSON
2002 Knowledge engineering review (Print)  
Role models represent agent behaviour, and the design of the agent system is done by systematically allocating roles to agents.  ...  These ideas are in the core of RAMASD (Role Algebraic Multi-Agent System Design), our method for high-level design of agent organisations, described in this paper.  ...  The emphasis of SODA is on providing agent-based system engineers with specific, ad hoc modelling abstractions and tools, which focus on inter-agent aspects such as societies and agent spaces (an agent  ...
