Abstract

Originally a development methodology targeted at object technology, the OPEN Process Framework (OPF) is found to be a successful basis for extensions that support agent-oriented software development. Here we describe the process components necessary to agent-oriented support and illustrate the extensions by means of two small case studies that illustrate the extensions by means of two small case studies that illustrate both task-driven processes and goal-driven processes. The additional process components for Tasks and Techniques are all generated from the OPF’s metamodel, which gives the OPF its flexibility and tailorability to a wide variety of situations—here agent-orientation.
