The MESSAGE methodology has shown that the application of meta-models in the development of Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) facilitates the integration of current software engineering processes and the use of agent technology concepts in analysis and design activities. This paper presents an extension to the MESSAGE meta-models and how to conduct the modelling (i.e., instantiation of the meta-models into a specific MAS) following the Unified Software Development Process, especially considering the importance of an incremental development and the role of the different meta-model entities in this process. This process is illustrated by an example.
