Abstract

The Trading Agent Competition (TAC) is an international forum which promotes high-quality research regarding the trading agent problem. One of the TAC competitive scenarios is Supply Chain Management (SCM) where six agents compete by buying components, assembling PCs from these components and selling the manufactured PCs to customers. The idea of TAC SCM is the development of agent-based architectures that implement wide-applicable business strategies which efficiently manage cross-enterprise processes. In this paper, we analyze the TAC SCM environment and describe the main features of the CrocodileAgent, our entry in the TAC SCM Competition.
