Agent-based support for interactive search in conceptual software engineering design
While recent attempts to search a conceptual software engineering design search space with multi-objective evolutionary algorithms have yielded promising results, the practical application of such search-based techniques remains to be addressed. This paper reports initial findings of the application of software agents in support of an interactive, user-centered conceptual software design scenario. The supporting role of a number of single responsibility agents is described and results for a case study indicate that the application of such agents to search-based design scenarios provides efficient, high performance and effective support. The notion of interactive, joint human-computer activity appears to map well to conceptual software design scenarios: focus on superior design concepts and thence to useful and interesting designs provides a natural and effective way of narrowing the population based search. In addition, agents and the human designer appear to interact as cooperative ...
