An Organizational Model for Designing Adaptive Multiagent Systems

Scott A. DeLoach and Eric Matson

This paper describes how to design adaptive multiagent systems using an organizational model, which defines the entities and relationships of a typical organization. The major elements of the model consist of goals, roles, agents, capabilities, and the relationships between them. By designing a system using the model, the system can determine the best mapping of agents to roles, based on their current capabilities, for the current system goals. Specifically, we show how to use the model in developing an adaptive information system, which is an information system that can modify its processing algorithms or information sources to provide required information at various levels of efficiency and effectiveness.
