Abstract: In this work we present the basic concepts for a dynamic plug-in-based software architecture using concepts from the Petri net-based MAS framework MULAN. By transferring the concepts of agent-orientation to a plug-in-based architecture we are able to design our application and the plug-in-based system on an abstract level. Moreover, general problems that evolve from a highly dynamic and configurable architecture have been solved by basing the conceptual design on multi-agent principles. The introduced concepts have been applied to the software architecture of the tool RENEW.
