A Multi-agent Based Evaluation Framework and Its Applications


This work was supported by National Natural Science Foundation of China (61074034, 61021063, 61174072, 61174105), and National Key Technology Support Program (2013BAG18B01).

  • The evaluation system is significant for assessment of technologies, experiments, energy cost and effectiveness, especially for the complicated engineering systems, such as energy systems, weapon systems and spacecraft systems. However, as engineering systems become more and more distributed and heterogeneous, evaluation frameworks need to be more universal, distributed and interactive. In this paper, we compare several typical evaluation frameworks and propose a novel evaluation framework based on multi-agent technology. We provide two case studies, indoor comfort system and technology assessment of spacecraft systems, respectively. The results show that the proposed framework can work efficiently.
