Modeling a Smart Music Player with a Hybrid Agent-Oriented Methodology

By Yuxiu Luo, Leon Sterling and Kuldar Taveter


This paper presents experience with using a hybrid agent-oriented software engineering methodology for designing an agent-based software system. We elicit and analyse system requirements using ROADMAP, with associated tool REBEL. We develop initial system design using Prometheus with associated tool PDT. Applying the combination of the methodologies facilitates understanding of system requirements by non-technical clients. A key feature of our work is its handling of quality requirements, which are identified as an essential asset for analysing design alternatives. We contribute to the current state of art by demonstrating the application of a hybrid methodology with a case study of a smart music player. We created concrete artefacts to represent models and found and clarified conflicting concepts between the two methodologies when we developed the case study. Suggestions are proposed to facilitate goal elicitation and verification. 1
