Modeling and Designing Computational Organizations

Young-pa So and Edmund H. Durfee

In this paper, we address the following question: to what extent can organization design be treated as routine design problem, with a well-defined space o] possibilities and explicit evaluation criteria? The kinds of organizations we are particularly interested in are computational organizations which consist of computational agents that cooperate with one another on their organizational tasks. We present a model of computational organization design that uses predictive knowledge about how exactly various taskenvironmental and organizational factors determine the performance of the organization.
