Abstract

We employ computational experiment to explore the co-evolution of service vendors and consumers under collaborative commerce. GAs based on CA is designed for the optimal profit model. We program agent-based computational experiment system with Logo on NetLogo 5.0 platform, and a virtual implemented system is presented. The experiment system can provide technique support to e-commerce firms in decision making with regards to optimal collaborative service providing, consumer behavior management, etc.
