Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


A declarative compositional modelling framework, DESIRE, designed to model\nknowledge-intensive multi-agent systems, is shown to provide a means to\nmodel distributed industrial and business processes. An agent's knowledge,\nreasoning processes and interaction with other agents, and the world are\nexplicitly specified within this framework. Electricity transportation\nmanagement is used to illustrate the characteristic elements of the approach,\nin particular with respect to dynamic aspects of distributed industrial\nand business processes; aspects which are of importance to knowledge management\nand knowledge engineering.
