Modeling the activities, knowledge, and requirements of agents (both human and automated) has been recognized as a recurrent theme in research conducted by members of the Software and Systems Technology Area (SSTA) at the Honeywell Technology Center (HTC). In fact, we have formed a special interest group that aims to collate and clarify the broad range of task and agent modeling experiences of the hundred-odd SSTA members. This paper gives a high-level overview of the various functions agent modeling has played in our research, as exemplified in several projects. We hope that this effort will eventually lead to fruitful cooperative activities with other researchers pursuing related work.
