Adaptive organizational changes in agent-oriented methodologies

Luca Cernuzzi, Franco Zambonelli
We analyze the problem of modeling and developing multiagent systems (MASs) from the organizational theory point of view. In particular, we focus on the critical issue of adaptingMASs organizations whenever changes in the structure of the MAS are required. We survey different relevant agent-oriented methodologies and discuss their suitability in dealing with adaptation in multiagent organizations. Finally, we present some critical considerations about the analyzed methodologies together with some open issues related to the process of modeling organizations for facilitating their adaptations.
