2016 : Automated negotiation for non-producing management decision
Dr Christiono Utomo S.T., M.T.
There are two options for managing the unused equipment, i.e. preservation and abandonment. The decision for non-producing cluster management takes long discussion as it involves conflicting interests between a division of field operation which prefer abandonment for cost saving purpose and a division of geo science which prefer preservation to anticipate future field revival by applying new technology. There are different concern caused by differing preferences, experiences, and background therefore a support system is required to evaluate and rank the solution alternatives. Other technical and non-technical aspects need to be incorporated in the decision making in order to ensure a thorough assessment. After individual decision maker evaluate the alternative, agents negotiate the best solution. It needs automated negotiation for conflict resolution and decision making.
