Do We Need Specific Quality Models for Multi-Agent Systems? - Toward Using the ISO/IEC 25010 Quality Model for MAS

Toufik Marir, Farid Mokhati, Hassina Bouchlaghem-Seridi

Abstract

The quality assurance of software is one of the most important purposes of software engineering. However, the quality concept is undergone to subjective interpretations. Consequently, several models are proposed to understand and evaluate the software quality. The ISO/IEC 25010 is the new international standard quality model. Being standard increases the applicability of such model for all software products. Knowing that the multi-agent systems are one of the most applied software paradigms; we target in this paper the applicability of the ISO/IEC 25010 to agent-based software.
