Project ID: IST-1999-10211
Funded under: FP5-IST

Abstract

This deliverable stands for the final report for project LEAP. It provides an update of the project objectives, methodologies and management aspects. The projects main results in terms of technical achievements as well as dissemination, collaboration with other projects and impacts on standards are also evaluated to the initial objectives.
The project is addressing the need for open infrastructures and services, which support dynamic and mobile enterprise workforces. It has developed agent-based services supporting three requirements of a mobile enterprise workforce:
- knowledge management (anticipating individual knowledge requirements);
- Decentralised work co-ordination (empowering individuals, co-ordinating and trading jobs);
- Travel management (planning and coordinating individual travel needs).
Among its objectives, the project distinguishes between the Lightweight Extensible Agent Platform and the agent-based services. The LEAP applications are the integration of both and are assessed via two field trials.
