Agent-based systems have been designed and developed using recent agent technologies. However, design and debugging of these systems is difficult because of agents' situational and nondeterministic behavior, and 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 agent system founded on an agent-repository based multiagent framework which emphasizes an important feature of agent system design: the use/reuse of existing agents from an agent repository. We propose an interactive design environment of agent system (IDEA) and demonstrate its effectiveness.
