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 Procurement Challenge (SCM-PC) where three agents compete by buying components, assembling PCs from these components and selling the manufactured PCs to customers. The idea of SCM-PC is the development of agent-based systems that implement efficient business strategies, with special emphasis on the procurement processes. In this paper, we analyze the SCM-PC environment and describe the main features of the CrocodileAgent, our entry in the SCM-PC Competition.
