Abstract : This report presents a system concept for an intelligent executive. Specifically, the functional requirements of a distributed group of agents are analyzed, along with the characteristics of different forms of communication. The intelligent executive embodies guidelines for specifying an appropriate communication strategy given the problem environment and the informational requirements of the group. When employed within a distributed problem solving environment, the intelligent executive is expected to facilitate the solution to a problem by increasing communication efficiency and problem-solving capabilities of distributed agents.
