Paper Abstract

The task of building a multiagent system using traditional software tools is a complex and error-prone process. Therefore, we have developed an agent infrastructure called Cybele and a verification tool called DIVA for building agent based systems suited for large distributed applications. These tools enforce simple coding practice and facilitate generation of complex systems. These tools in the context of factory scheduling will allow the agent designers to design and assign roles to the problem-solving entities, design and verify interaction protocols, and subsequently use the distributed system either as a simulation or as a control and execution system. In this paper, we discuss how Cybele and DIVA can be used in designing a system that solves dynamic scheduling problems in real-time.
