Improving upon the TAEMS/DTC framework in the context of coordinated scheduling

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 propose how to modularise TAEMS/DTC to form a kind of construction kit for local agent coordination and control and how to extend the scope to also cover domain-dependent context. Throughout, we aim to simplify application and integration of the TAEMS/DTC framework while preserving its core ideas.
