PEREZ, Adith; PERTUZ, Vanessa; LEIVA, Magaly  and  VEGA, Adriana. Structural and Functional Elements of Multi-Agent Systems for the Organizational Cooperation in Medium-sized Companies. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2019, vol.30, n.4, pp.155-164. ISSN 0718-0764.

The presence of the structural and functional elements of the Multi-Agent systems inside medium-sized companies, identifying the opportunity to strengthen the cooperation links between them. The research is epistemologically based on the school of logical positivism, with quantitative approach, and descriptive type. The sample are forty-four (44) medium-sized companies of the Valledupar municipality, Colombia, with capitals between US$ 1.300.000 and US$ 4.000.000. The results show the presence of the elements and functions of the Multi-Agent systems in the surveyed medium-sized companies. In addition, the presence of organizational cooperation links was demonstrated, especially to the characteristics of extension, intensity, renewal, specialization and adaptability. However, a low presence of the stability characteristic of cooperation links is observed. This represents an opportunity for the development of cooperation capacities, negotiation mechanisms, mutual trust and use of synergies.

Keywords : multi-agent system; business relationship; medium-sized companies; stability indicators.
