Designing Multi Agent System Architecture for Project Performance Based on PMBOK Standard
PMBOK (project management body of knowledge) is the recognized and the most accepted standard for project management, however many projects still fail by using or misusing PMBOK guidelines, due to poor communications, lack of monitoring and non performance measurement. In this paper we use the advantages of agent technology to make implementation and use of PMBOK processes more efficient and to have insights on the progress of projects and to anticipate possible problems that can lead the project failure.
