Abstract

In this paper we describe an early stage prototype of a system for information resource management in an agent-based virtual organization. We focus our work on support for human resource adaptability (e.g. knowledge, skills) as a tool for assisting project managers. In the proposed approach, a virtual organization is functionalized in terms of roles played by agents, while organization structure and information flow are represented in terms of agent-agent and agent-human interactions. Finally, all resources (e.g. workers, skills, training resources, etc.) are ontologically demarcated, and information is semantically processed. Discussion of organizational needs is followed by the outline of the system. Finally, basic capabilities of the implemented prototype are illustrated.
