Abstract: The intelligent agents technology became in the last years one of the most efficient software technology that provide solutions for the development of complex, distributed software systems that work in dynamic and open environments. Different methodologies were created for a good engineering of these agent-based systems, most of them being specific to certain types of applications. The paper presents a synthesis and a brief analysis study of the main agent-based methodologies that were reported so far in the literature.

Keywords: intelligent agents, multiagent systems, software engineering, agent-based methodologies.
