An assessment of the TAEMS/DTC framework in the context of coordinated scheduling and directions for improvements

Bernhard Jung, Paolo Petta

TAEMS, DTC and GPGP constitute an evolved framework for coordination in multi-agent systems. In this paper we focus on inconsistencies and semantic interpretation problems encountered during an implementation of a DTC scheduler. We try to disambiguate and simplify concepts and propose extensions and new features for TAEMS and DTC to better understand, use, and integrate the framework in an agent architecture. We indicate how TAEMS/DTC can be modularised to form a kind of construction kit for local agent coordination and control and how they can be extended to support even domain-dependent context. With this, we aim to simplify application and integration of the TAEMS/DTC framework while preserving its core ideas.
