RAPID BEHAVIOUR MODELLING FOR AN AGENT-BASED SIMULATION

Sascha A. Goldner

Abstract

Agent-based modelling and simulation has been applied to many different domains for studying highly complex systems. Usually these contain many different entities with their own specific behaviour patterns. The primary strength of agent-based simulation is to model and analyse human behaviour. In this context, one of the most complex and time-consuming tasks is the implementation of behavioural models for the human-like agents. In order to reduce this effort two additional methodologies are taken into consideration and applied to the agent-based model. Business process modelling and case-based reasoning is used for a rapid development of the behavioural part of an agent. This paper describes the scientific goals, ongoing work and interim results of the approach using the security system of an airport as an example.
