Agent-based development for business processes

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Due to the ever-changing business environment, the supporting IT-systems that execute business processes within organisations must be increasingly flexible and adaptable if those organisations are to remain competitive in today’s environment. On the other hand, despite offering promising solutions to autonomy, flexibility and adaptability, intelligent agent technology still faces many challenges in being adopted by the industry. Due to their distinct properties, agent-based systems provide a powerful platform for business process execution. Our work focuses in this area with the aim to bridge the gap between business process modelling and agent-oriented development, and consequently contributes to bring benefits to both communities. More specifically, we propose a method for a seamless transition from business process models in Business Process Modelling Notation (BPMN) to agent-oriented models in the Prometheus methodology.
