The MIND architecture of distributed mobile interactive document is a new processing model defined for facilitate informed decision-making in non-algorithmic decision-making processes carried out by knowledge-based organizations. The aim of this architecture is to change the static document to mobile agents, which are designed to implement the structure of the organization through autonomous migration between knowledge workers in accordance with the built-in policy. An extensible functionality of the agents also extends the static document to interface unit. The prototype of the agent system, based on the MIND architecture, shows the possibility of its implementation using available technology. The case studies provide the possibility of using architecture to solve specific decision problems with external knowledge of organization’s workers.
