This article presents a methodology — HOLOS — for deriving particular multiagent dynamic scheduling systems from a generic architecture. An object-oriented approach is used to support information modeling and knowledge representation. The integration aspects are addressed since agents are heterogeneous and have to access external information sources. A brief explanation about the HOLOS System Generator, an interactive system deriver based on the HOLOS methodology, is also given, as well as a general description of the prototype being developed at the UNINOVA FAS/FMS pilot system. Finally, some comments are made on the current status and next steps of the work.
