Abstract

TAEMS, DTC and GPGP constitute a framework that can be used to address coordination problems in multi-agent systems. This paper will focus on inconsistencies and semantic interpretation problems that occurred during the work on a re-implementation of a DTC scheduler. These problems will be discussed in detail, it will be tried to disambiguate and simplify concepts and propose extensions and new features for TAEMS and DTC that can help to better understand, use and integrate the framework in an agent architecture. It will be pointed out how understanding of T\AE MS and DTC can be made easier, how TAEMS/DTC can be modularised to form a kind of construction kit for local agent coordination and control and how they can be extended to support even domain-dependent context. These issues can help to simplify appliance and integration of the TAEMS/DTC framework without destroying the core ideas behind.
