Analysis and Design by Agent Based MaSE Methodology: A Case Study
Multiagent Systems Engineering (MaSE) Methodology is one of old object-oriented methodology which supports the development process and is established based on the development of the object-oriented software engineering methods and their adjustment with the agent view. Some characteristics of the agent like autonomy, creativity and pre-activated are not paid attention. The agents are supposed as simple software processes which cooperate to obtain a certain goal. There are two basic phases in MaSE: analysis and design. The analysis phase concentrates on specializing the agent's roles, their duties and interactions. In design phase, matters such as diagrams and conversations class are introduced. The all steps in MaSE are implemented by graphic tools, agent Tool.
