Multi-Agent System for Distributed Adaptive Design
This paper deals with the design of a multi-agent system for distributed design. The design processes are often complex and require high computational costs. Yet in many situations many elements of a design process can be computed simultaneously and thus lowering the total time required to finish the design. In this paper an approach based on hypergraph representation and using a formal background of the parallel application of the graph transformation rules is presented (parallel derivation process). The system is illustrated with examples from the floor layout design system.
