Abstract

The current chapter offers a complete description of the proposed DeciMaS framework. The chapter shows the components of the DeciMaS framework and the way in which they are organized. The three DeciMaS framework’s stages, namely, preliminary domain and system analysis, system design and coding, and, simulation and decision making, are explained in detail. During the first stage, the analyst researches the following questions: what the system has to do and how it has to do it. As a result of this collaboration the meta-ontology and the knowledge base appear. The active element of the second stage is a developer, who implements the agent-based system and prepares it for further usage. During the last phase, the final user, a decision maker, can interact with the system. This interaction consists of constructing solutions and policies, and estimating consequences of possible actions on the basis of simulation models. Design and implementation of the system are discussed. The chapter demonstrates how information is transformed into knowledge and illustrates the transformations made throughout each stage of the DeciMaS framework. Furthermore, the information about data mining methods, which are used in the DeciMaS framework, are introduced and depicted in detail.
