SOCIAL PATTERNS FOR QUALITY CONTROL IN MULTI-AGENT SYSTEMS

Thi-Thuy-Hang Hoang, Manuel Kolp

Abstract

Modern softwares are not only required to perform some specific functions but also have to satisfy all the quality constraints described by the initial requirements. In this paper, we focus on some useful social patterns that will facilitate the developers’ task when dealing with quality constraint in multi-agent systems. These patterns define some agents and their interactions that help to monitor and to react to any changes of quality at the runtime.
