AMA: a compound methodology for designing and implementing agent-based systems

Erfan Ghandehari, Fatemeh Saadatjoo, Mohammad Ali Zare Chahooki


Agent oriented software engineering (AOSE) is one of the new developments in computer software technology. This technology provides facilities for design and generation of complex distributive systems in the form of agent oriented methodologies. It also analyses interactions among the agents and calculations based on agent. Various methodologies have already been presented for development of agent oriented software which can be used in different software projects. Regarding the fact that in software projects, selection of the appropriate methodology for development leads to the made product having appropriate quality and efficiency, recognition of the methodologies` weak and strong points in order to apply them in different projects seems crucial. In this article we intend to develop a compound methodology by mixing the strengths of methodologies in all phases. In this connection, the strengths of the three methodologies of AOR, MASSIVE, and ADELFE are extracted based on assessment methods and criteria including concepts and conceptions, modeling language, process and pragmatism. Then, a methodology dubbed ``AMA`` is developed through mixing the strengths of these methodologies.
