This paper discusses how the performance of a network of agents can be improved using a self-organisation technique. The multi-agent network performance can be improved by organizing the agents in clusters. Furthermore, principles of self-organisation can be used to create agent organisations triggered when some of the agents have high load. Hence, busy agents within the network may decide to create an organisation to receive extra support from other less busy agents in order to execute more tasks. The paper presents a simulation based on Repast Simphony that has been used to develop the proposed model and describes a set of experiments showing the performance of the system with and without the self-organisation technique.
