Abstract

To face the challenges of rapid enterprises environment change, enterprises need agile information systems that are flexible, reactive and adaptive. The process of mapping business requirements to the system functionalities involves several constraints that make the whole development process again very susceptible to errors. In this paper, we present a model-driven approach combined with software agent to develop an agile information system. In this work, we focus on the development of multi-agent systems (MAS) and a set of model transformation rules. Different ways of transforming a model into another exist. The choice of a target model differs according to quality criteria and is determined on the basis of specific requirements. The development process proposed is based separate aspects of systems, a BPMN meta-model, AML agent meta-model and a JADEX meta-model and the automated transformation rules with ATL language. The approach leading elements are: the meta-modeling, and mapping rules. Finally, we illustrate our proposals with a case study.
