While multiagent systems have been extolled as dynamically configurable and capable of emergent behavior, these qualities can be a drawback. When the system changes so that it no longer achieves its goals, emergent behavior is undesirable. Giving agents the autonomy to adapt and then expecting them to adapt only in acceptable ways requires rigorous design analyses. In this paper, we propose metrics for determining system flexibility at design time. Our approach is based on organization-baseddoi:10.1007/11693017_15 fatcat:vnaq6f566vcsrcecm5ko4lkvca
