Abstract

This research designs a multi-agent based multi-attribute negotiation framework for large-scale construction projecs (LCP) supply chain coordination (SCC) through adopting the agent technology and regarding supply chain as a typical multi-agent system. Since different members in the supply chain have different preferences on the decision attributes (such as cost, time, quality, safety and environment), a multi-attribute negotiation mechanism is established by constructing the multi-attribute negotiation model, describing the negotiation process, and designing negotiation protocol. Finally, a prototype system is developed and tested on a hypothetical LCP. The experiment indicates that the negotiation mechanism can solve problems in LCP supply chain and provides a solution to LCP SCC.
