Comparison of Agent-Oriented Software Engineering Processes
The following pages contain an overview of different agent-oriented software engineering processes and their characteristics. General issues with the evaluation of AOSE approaches are described in Comparing and Evaluating Agent-oriented Software Engineering Approaches. The comparison is conducted using qualitative criteria introduced by Tran and Low (2005) and Tran et al. (2005) as detailed in Evaluation and Validation Criteria. The Qualitative Comparison of AOSE processes itself is conducted for a number of well-known AOSE processes and will be extended in the future for further methodologies. Finally, Selecting a suitable AOSE process gives some hints on how the criteria can be used to select an approach for a specific project.
