Abstract: In this paper, we propose a conceptual automated multi-agent negotiation model for decision making in the construction domain. The proposed model enables software agents to conduct negotiations and autonomously make decisions. The model consists of two components, namely, Agent Architecture and Negotiation Approach. The Agent Architecture combines a Negotiation Algorithm and a Negotiation Protocol that enable each agent to conduct and regulate the negotiation process. The Negotiation Approach combines a Decision-making Process based on Value Management, a Negotiation Process Base that hosts negotiation operations among agents and a Conflict Resolution Algorithm. The paper presents the conceptual findings of these components. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2016.
