An integrated decision support system based on software agents

Nikraz, M. and Bahri, P.A.ORCID: 0000-0003-4661-5644 (2006) An integrated decision support system based on software agents. In: 4th International Industrial Simulation Conference, ISC 2006, 5 - 7 June, Palermo; Italy pp. 62-66.

Abstract

A methodology for modelling of multi-agent systems using the JADE platform has recently been proposed. This methodology is applied to model 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 discussion of previous work in this area. Next, a brief summary of the methodology recently proposed for the modelling of multi-agent systems using the JADE platform is given. Finally, it is shown how an agent-based approach is seen as a very effective modelling tool through application of the methodology to the pilot plant representing the Bayer Process at Murdoch University.
