Abstract

This study, taking reference of “Generic Workflow Production Structure, GWPS” proposed by WfMC and combining with design concepts of the Multi-Agent System, sets forth “Agent-Based Workflow Management System Architecture” and implements it onto the JADE (Java Agent DEvelopment Framework) platform. Taking Conference Info System as an example, this study analyzes, designs and implements Agent-Based Conference Info System by the structure set forth in the study.
