  • Architectural Design Patterns for Multiagent Coordination
    3rd International Conference on Autonomous Agents (AGENTS-99), 1999
    Co-Authors: Sandra C Hayden, Christina Carrick, Qiang Yang, B C Canada

    Abstract:

    This paper presents our rrst step towards agent-oriented software engineering, focusing on the area of coordinated multi-agent systems. In multi-agent systems, the interactions between the agents are crucial in determining the eeectiveness of the system. Hence the adoption of an appropriate coordination mechanism is pivotal in the Design of multi-agent system architectures. This paper does not focus on agent theory, rather on the develop-ment of an agent-oriented software engineering methodology, collabo-ration architectures and Design patterns for collaboration. A catalog of coordination patterns inherent in multi-agent architectures is pre-sented. Such patterns may be utilized in the Architectural Design for multiagent systems, allowing researchers and practitioners to improve the integrability and reusability properties of their systems.

  • focus on Architectural Design process through learning styles
    Design Studies, 2003
    Co-Authors: Osman O Demirbas, Halime Demirkan

    Abstract:

    Abstract Learning as an interactive process is an important issue in Architectural Design education. This study aims to focus on Architectural Design process through learning styles that are ‘accommodating’, ‘diverging’, ‘assimilating’ and ‘converging’ as stated in the Experiential Learning Theory of Kolb. A research was conducted to evaluate the effects of learning style preferences on the performance of Design students in a Design process. It was found that there were statistically significant differences between the performance scores of students having diverse learning styles at various stages of Design process. Also, it was found that performance scores of all students having different learning styles had increased at the end of the Design process where the progress of assimilating learners were the highest and accommodating learners the lowest.

  • documenting after the fact recovering Architectural Design decisions
    Journal of Systems and Software, 2008
    Co-Authors: Anton Jansen, Jan Bosch, Paris Avgeriou

    Abstract:

    Software architecture documentation helps people in understanding the software architecture of a system. In practice, software architectures are often documented after the fact, i.e. they are maintained or created after most of the Design decisions have been made and implemented. To keep the architecture documentation up-to-date an architect needs to recover and describe these decisions. This paper presents ADDRA, an approach an architect can use for recovering Architectural Design decisions after the fact. ADDRA uses Architectural deltas to provide the architect with clues about these Design decisions. This allows the architect to systematically recover and document relevant Architectural Design decisions. The recovered Architectural Design decisions improve the documentation of the architecture, which increases traceability, communication, and general understanding of a system.
