Realizing the NOSHAPE MAS Organizational Model: An Operational ViewInternational Journal of Agent Technologies and Systems (IJATS) (2015)
Dynamic reorganization of multi-agent systems (MAS) is currently an interesting and active research area. New emerging concepts such as self-organization and emergence are also getting great focus by MAS research community because of their captivating benefits for engineering complex large-scale MAS applications. Dynamic reorganization is considered as an effective way for building adaptive MAS. This paper provides an operational view of the conceptually proposed NOSHAPE dynamic organizational model for dynamically reorganized multi-agent systems (Abbas, 2014). The operational view concerns possible design decisions, implementation issues, and suggested usage of the NOSHAPE model for practically engineering real life applications. This paper also identifies the possible solutions to be applied throughout the system design to resolve these concerns.
