Abstract

In this paper, we propose a negotiation algorithm for automated decision-making in the construction domain. The algorithm enables software agents to conduct negotiations and autonomously make decisions. The algorithm consists of eight steps which are submit solutions, review solutions’ weights, solutions pair ranking, set a plan, select the plan, form coalition, review coalitions’ strength, and re-evaluate coalition. We first present the algorithm architecture then the related definition and formulation of each step and subsequently demonstrate the complete operation of the proposed algorithm using pseudocode.
