Abstract: The intelligent agent paradigm has shown considerable promise as a candidate for general complex systems development. However, it is our belief that this promise will remain unfulfilled, with application of the paradigm constrained to situations where there is an overriding requirement to model human behaviour in a cognitively realistic manner. In our experience, such applications are uncommon and we have found that a team programming paradigm, as realised in frameworks such as GORITE, is generally more appropriate for complex systems development, particularly for engineered systems. In this paper, we introduce both the team programming paradigm and its realisation using GORITE.
