- Agents for military logistic planning
- Perugini, Don; Lambert, Dale; Sterling, Leon; Pearce, Adrian
- Military logistics planning at the operational level is a complex process, involving collaboration amongst many geographically distributed, organisational and information entities, and tedious calculations and analysis. This makes it difficult to form a suitable plan within a reasonable time frame. The agent-based Logistics Planning System (LPS) is a project aimed at developing a support system for logistics planners. Agents in the LPS will model the business process, expertise and interactions of the organisational or information entities within the logistics planning process. Together, they will automate logistics plan formation, analysis and information gathering, allowing the logistics planner to spend their time refining the logistics plan rather than creating a logistics plan. The agents are to be developed using the Defence Science and Technology Organisation's (BDI-based) ATTITUDE multi-agent programming language.
