Abstract

Virtual enterprise oriented projects need the support of distributed project management system which concerns the collaboration of different departments and enterprises. In this chapter, we propose a multiagent system with negotiation strategies for project schedule control - a collaborative system framework wherein a distributed project can be scheduled dynamically by agents in the virtual enterprise environment. A prototype of the multiagent systems with the negotiation strategies is implemented by Java, JADE, FIPA-ACL, and the negotiation strategies are experimentally validated. It successfully demonstrates on the online coordination and resolution of scheduling dynamically while encountering unexpected events to meet each project participant’s requirements.
