Agent-based systems have been designed and developed using recent agent technologies. However, design and debugging of these systems is difficult because agents have situational and nondeterministic behavior and because effective design support technologies have not been proposed. To raise the efficiency of the agent system design process, we propose an interactive design method of an agent system founded on an agent-repository- based multiagent framework that emphasizes an important feature of agent system design: the use and reuse of existing agents from an agent repository. We propose an interactive design environment of agent system (IDEA) and demonstrate its effectiveness.
