Abstract

In this paper, we present MultiJADE, a domain independent multiagent active design documents environment. MultiJADE uses multiagent technology to support activities in concurrent and distributed design systems. It is able to deal with various domains and allows multiple designers to work simultaneously. MultiJADE is based on the Active Design Documents (ADD) approach. It uses the ADD’s potential for capturing and generating design rationale for supporting conflict mitigation whenever conflicts between designers arise during a concurrent design. This paper shows how MultiJADE enables the construction of concurrent and distributed design systems and how they may be used for mitigating conflicts during the design process. We also exemplify the use of MultiJADE with a prototype system that supports the decision about human resource allocation costs on a concurrent and distributed design.
