Description/Abstract

This project aims to use multi-agent systems (MAS) to model and simulate engineering teams operating within two large, UK-based manufacturing organisations. In so doing, it seeks to: 1) Integrate expertise in occupational psychology, engineering and computer science. 2) Enhance links between theory and practice in occupational psychology. 3) Develop long-term capability to understand and explain organisational issues. 4) Produce a model to help organisations make better informed decisions, and reduce the risks associated with organisational change.
