The rationale behind the development of an airline operations control centre using Gaia-based methodology
by Antonio Castro, Eugenio Oliveira
International Journal of Agent-Oriented Software Engineering (IJAOSE), Vol. 2, No. 3, 2008

Abstract: In this paper, we report how we complemented Gaia methodology to analyse and design a multi-agent system for an airline company operations control centre. Besides showing the rationale behind the analysis, design and implementation of our system, we also present how we mapped the abstractions used in agent-oriented design to specific constructs in JADE. The advantages of using a goal-oriented early requirements analysis and its influence on subsequent phases of analysis and design are also presented. Finally, we also propose UML 2.0 diagrams at several different levels for the representation of Gaia deliverables, such as organisational structure, role and interaction model, and agent and service model.
