A Modeling Environment for Normative Multi-Agent Systems

Emmanuel S. S. Freire, Robert M. Rocha Júnior, Mariela I. Cortés

Abstract

Tools to support the development of Multi-Agent Systems are essential to promote the effective utilization of the approach in the industry. More specifically, an adequate support for the modeling activity is useful to increase the productivity and contributes to the reduction of possible errors that would only be detected in execution time. This paper presents the evolution of MAS-ML tool to support the modeling of normative multi-agent systems modeled in NorMAS-ML language.
