PosoMAS: An Extensible, Modular SE Process for Open Self-organising Systems

Jan-Philipp Steghöfer, Hella Seebach, Benedikt Eberhardinger, Wolfgang Reif

This paper introduces PosoMAS, the Process for open, self-organising Multi-Agent Systems. The process is composed of a number of practices, reusable and customisable building parts, and integrated into the lifecycle of the Open Unified Process to yield an iterative, incremental software engineering process tailored to open self-organising systems. The individual practices are introduced and their interplay described. We evaluate PosoMAS in two case studies and provide a qualitative comparison with existing AOSE processes.
