A great number of Agent Oriented Software Engineering (AOSE) approaches and methodologies have been proposed in recent years, explicitly or implicitly, presenting different abstractions for the design and development of Multi-Agent Systems (MAS). This paper pays specific attention to the common abstractions used to model the complexity of MAS independently of the specific application. Moreover, it analyzes which of them are covered by Gaia integrated with AUML. Finally, as a case study, this paper presents an agent based solution modeled in Gaia with AUML and developed for the auditing process of the Central Bank in a developing country.
