Abstract

With the Java Enterprise Simulator (jES), it is possible to reproduce, in a detailed way, the behavior of a firm or organization using a computer. This method relies on agent-based simulation techniques, i.e., the reconstruction of a phenomenon via the action and interaction of minded or no-minded agents within a specific environment. In our case, we have defined no-minded agents as agents who execute orders, whereas we have defined minded agents as those making decisions within the model. Simulating a single enterprise or a system of enterprises (e.g., within a district or within a virtual enterprise system), we can directly apply the what if analysis. In other words, we can introduce changes into the simulation while fully preserving the complexity of our context.
