Design and Implementation of ARCHON's Coordination Module

Jennings, N. R. and Pople, J. A. (1993) Design and Implementation of ARCHON's Coordination Module At Workshop on Cooperating Knowledge Based Systems, United Kingdom. , pp. 61-82.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper describes the design and implementation of a domain-independent reusable coordination module. This module is at the heart of the ARCHON architecture and has been used in the development of cooperating multi-agent systems in a number of realworld industrial applications including: electricity distribution management, electricity transportation management, cement factory control, flexible assembly robotic cells and particle accelerator control. The module is based upon the philosophy of providing a corpus of extensible generic knowledge about cooperation and situation assessment. Special prominence is given to the problem of controlling the reasoning within the coordination module.
