Agent System for Managing Distributed Mobile Interactive Documents in Knowledge-Based Organizations

  • Magdalena Godlewska
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7190)


The MIND architecture of distributed mobile interactive document is a new processing model defined to facilitate obtaining a proper solution in knowledge processes carried out by knowledge-based organizations. Such organizations have an established structure that defines document templates and knowledge process. The aim of the MIND architecture is to change the static document to mobile agents, which are designed to implement the structure of the organization through autonomous migration between knowledge workers in accordance with the built-in policy. An extensible functionality of the agents also extends the static document to interface unit. The prototype of the agent system, based on the MIND architecture, shows the possibility of its implementation using available technology. The case studies provide the possibility of using architecture to solve specific decision problems with external knowledge of organization’s workers.
