Agent-enabled model integration in a knowledge-based planning environment

Abstract: The field of fire protection engineering is characterized by the cooperation of experts and by the distribution of knowledge resources. The availability of relevant knowledge in all states of the planning process is the basis for a high product quality and for optimal conditions for the rescue of persons. Hence, this project aims to create a knowledge based planning environment that offers multiple services for decision support in fire protection engineering. Therefore, structured information resources (such as model and product databases) and unstructured information (such as legal guidelines and other document-based information) have to be identified and integrated. This paper focuses on the integration of distributed partial building models in a network-based planning environment. The implementation of this integration as an agent-based component and its role in the knowledge-based planning environment are presented. Different distributed design models are integrated on the basis of mobile agents. The concept of an agent-based integration of information resources is demonstrated via the implementation of a knowledge based service that checks the distributed models for compliance with fire protection requirements.
