Abstract : Progress in research on coordination in distributed decision making organizations with variable structure is reported.The focus of this report is on CAESAR II (for Computer Aided Evaluation of System Architectures) which is a suite of algorithms, interfaces, and COTS software for the design, analysis, and evaluation of decision making organizations. The suite has four major modules: Requirements Generation; Decision Making organization architecture generation; Selection and analysis of decision making organization; and Performance evaluation. Theoretical and empirical results of this and previous research efforts%have been integrated in CAESAR II.
