Dynamic change impact analysis for maintaining and evolving agent systems

Abstract


  • In contrast to an increasing number of agent-based applica-

    tions in various domains, there has been very little work on

    maintenance and evolution of agent systems. This paper ad-

    dresses this gap with a focus on change impact analysis, i.e.

    estimating the potential eects of changes before they are

    made as an agent system evolves. We propose a technique

    for performing impact analysis in an agent system using dy-

    namic information about agent behaviour. Our approach

    builds a representation of an agent's behaviour by analyzing

    its execution traces which consist of goals and plans, and

    uses this representation to estimate impacts.
