Intelligent agent is a fast emerging technology and has wide range of applications. Although there are several tools for agent development, there is few design tool to assist the conversion from paper based agent mental state design to effective representation of them in abstract data structures which can be used by the agent management system to create intelligent software agents. This paper proposes the goal net designer which is an integrated development environment (IDE) for modeling agent behavior based on goal net model, a goal orient methodology. It provides a way for the users to simplify the various stages of the design process and automatically generate design data which can be used by the multi- agent development environment (MADE) to automatically create intelligent agents. The system reduces the level of skills required for developing agent augmented application to such an extent that users with little knowledge in intelligent software agent technology can easily add intelligent agents into their applications and save time and cost involved in the development process.
