López, TS and Brintrup, A and McFarlane, D and Dwyer, D (2010) Selecting a multi-agent system development tool for industrial applications: A case study of self-serving aircraft assets. In: UNSPECIFIED pp. 400-405..Full text not available from this repository.
Industrialists have few example processes they can benchmark against in order to choose a multi-agent development kit. In this paper we present a review of commercial and academic agent tools with the aim of selecting one for developing an intelligent, self-serving asset architecture. In doing so, we map and enhance relevant assessment criteria found in literature. After a preliminary review of 20 multiagent platforms, we examine in further detail those of JADE, JACK and Cougaar. Our findings indicate that Cougaar is well suited for our requirements, showing excellent support for criteria such as scalability, persistence, mobility and lightweightness. © 2010 IEEE.
