As the science of building agents and agent based applications improves, agents are gradually making the transition from research laboratory prototypes to industrial applications. In an industrial setting pragmatic engineering issues related to the development and maintenance of agents come to the fore. In this paper a list of important engineering characteristics of agent architectures is presented. The list has the dual aims of providing evaluation criteria for agent users and design issuesdoi:10.1080/095281300409838 fatcat:2cv6bagclvflfkguofvjfxrgbm
