USING A TWO-WAY BALANCED INCOMPLETE BLOCK DESIGN TO COMPARING AN AGENT-ORIENTED SOFTWARE ENGINEERING METHODOLOGIES
Using a Two-way Balanced Incomplete Block Design to Comparing an Agent-Oriented Software Engineering Methodologies, 2007 There has been a surge of interest in agent-oriented software engineering in recent years. Numerous methodologies for developing agent-based systems have been proposed in the literature and the area of agent-oriented methodologies is maturing rapidly. Evaluating methodologies’ strengths, weaknesses and domains of applicability plays an important role in improving them and in developing the “next-generation” of methodologies. In this paper, we present a reliable framework that adopts statistical techniques to compare agent-oriented methodologies. Based upon this framework we performed a comparison of four AOSE methodologies MaSE, Prometheus, Tropos and Gaia….
