Abstract

A novel Multi-Agent system (MAS) for NDE inspection qualification is being developed to facilitate a scalable environment allowing integration and automation of new and existing inspection qualification tools. This paper discusses the advantages of using a MAS approach to integrate the large number of disparate NDE software tools. The design and implementation of the system architecture is described, including the development of an ontology to describe the NDE domain
