Applying the JADE Multi-Agent system development methodology for the integration of operational tasks in chemical plants

Nikraz, M. and Bahri, P.A. (2006) Applying the JADE Multi-Agent system development methodology for the integration of operational tasks in chemical plants. In: Agent-Oriented Software Engineering (AOSE) Workshop (2006) held with the 11th International CSI Computer Conference (CSICC) (2006), 24-26 January 2006, Tehran, Iran

Abstract

A recently proposed methodology for development of multi-agent systems using the JADE platform is applied for the integration of operational tasks in a chemical plant. Initially, the operational tasks are outlined, then some insight is given into what integration entails in this context, followed by a brief review of previous work in this area. Next, a summary of the methodology recently proposed for the analysis and design of multi-agent systems using the JADE platform is given. It is then shown how an agent-based approach is seen as a natural tool for the attainment of integration due to its flexibility, adaptability, and the overall mindset it provides the designer with. Finally, details are provided of the application of the methodology to the pilot plant representing the Bayer Process at Murdoch University.
