MARTINEZ-MIRANDA, Juan; ALDEA, Arantza  and  BANARES-ALCANTARA, René. Agent Based Simulation in the Selection of Work Teams. Comp. y Sist. [online]. 2004, vol.7, n.3, pp.210-223. ISSN 2007-9737.

When a new project starts in Industry, the correct selection of people to integrate a work team in order to develop that project is not trivial. The success of a project is greatly due to the personal responsibility of each member, but also to an adequate communication, collaboration and co-operation between the individual team members. In addition we consider that emotions play a critical role in rational decision-making, perception, human interaction, and human intelligence. Nowadays, the team selection process is typically done by one person (a manager) based on his/her past experience and his/her own information about the people's competence and availability. We present an Agent based model to simulate the human behaviour in a work team and a first prototype that implement it. Some initial results are discussed and the future work is presented.

Keywords : Emotions Modelling; Social Simulation; Multi-Agent Systems,; Human Performance Modelling.
