چکیده

در این مقاله با توجه به نقاط ضعف متدولوژی‌های عامل‌گرا در فاز‌های مختلف و تأثیر به‏سزایی که این کاستی‌ها، می‌تواند در کیفیت و کارایی پروژه‌های نرم‌افزاری داشته باشد به ارائه راهکاری ترکیبی برای معرفی متدولوژی (AP) از متدولوژی‌های ADELFEو PASSI پرداخته‌ایم. بدین منظور دو متدولوژی مورد بررسی در قالب یک چارچوب ارزیابی جامع بر اساس معیار‌های مفاهیم و ادراک‌ها، زبان مدل‌سازی، فرآیند و عمل-گرایی مورد ارزیابی قرار گرفته‌اند. با توجه به محدودیت‌های منابع و زمان، تصمیم به انتخاب متدولوژی‌های نمونه برای ارزیابی و یکسان‌سازی اتخاذ گردید. این انتخاب بر اساس میزان کاربرد متدولوژی‌های مورد بررسی و همچنین امکان یکسان‌سازی آن‌ها از دید افراد متخصص و خبره صورت گرفته است. بر اساس نتایج ارزیابی، متدولوژی ADELFE مراحل تحلیل سیستم‌های عامل‌گرا را به‌خوبی پشتیبانی می‌کند و مرحله‌ طراحی در آن به دلیل عدم مدل کردن قابلیت عامل‌ها، کامل نمی‌باشد، از طرف دیگر با توجه به این که، متدولوژی‌ PASSI مراحل طراحی و تعامل‌های بین عامل‌ها را به‌خوبی پشتیبانی می‌کند، با استفاده از مزایای دو متدولوژی، یک متدولوژی ترکیبی ارائه می-گردد که در آن از مرحله‌ تحلیل متدولوژی ADELFE و مرحله طراحی متدولوژی‌ PASSI استفاده می‌شود. پس از ایجاد متدولوژی ترکیبی چهار مدل کاربردی جدید به منظور ارتقای کاربرد دامنه پیشنهاد گردیده است. این مدل‌ها شامل کنشگرگسترش-یافته، هدف مجزا، سرویس و مدل سیستم گسترش یافته می‏باشند. به منظور تشریح فاز‌های مختلف این متدولوژی، از آن در یک مطالعه‌ی موردی استفاده شده است. نتایج این پژوهش می‌تواند زمینه را برای معرفی نسل بعدی متدولوژی‏های عامل‌گرا فراهم آورد.

چکیده [English]

In this paper with regard to the weaknesses in the various phases of the agent oriented methodologies and impact that these shortcomings can be in the quality and efficiency of software projects, a combinatory solution named (AP) from the ADELFE and PASSI methodologies have proposed. Therefore, in order to examine the two methodologies in the form of a comprehensive evaluation framework based on the criteria the concepts and perception, language modeling, process and pragmatism have been evaluated. Due to the limitations of time and resources, the decision to choose the sample methodologies for the evaluation and unification was adopted. This selection is based on the application of the methodology and their combination ability from expert's point of view. Based on the results of the assessment, methodology-oriented operating systems analysis steps ADELFE is well supported and its design stages because of lack of ability to model, is not complete. According to the evaluation results, the ADELFE methodology well supports stages of agent-oriented systems' analysis but its design stages because of lack of agent capability modeling is not complete. On the other hand, since PASSI methodologies well support the design stages and interactions between agents, a combined methodology based on analysis stage of ADELFE methodology and design stage of PASSI methodologies is proposed. In order to describe the various phases of this methodology, it has been used in a case study. The results of this research can be Provide background for introduction of the next generation of agent-oriented methodologies.
