Abstract:

This paper presents how information organizational structures with point-to-point communication structure impact team coordination in a distributed task-asset allocation problem. A key distinguishing characteristic of this problem is that each DM knows only a part of the weight matrix andor controls a subset of the assets. Here, we extend the distributed algorithm developed for blackboard communication structure in 11 to the point-to-point communication structure. Our results indicate that edge organizations with horizontal and vertical information structures exhibit shorter delays than block diagonal and checkerboard information structures.
