Abstract: In this work, we describe strategies for multi-agent coordination, where adequate coordination means a system performance increase. In the main strategy, when an agent cannot perform an action, for whatever reason, it chooses the agent more capable in the environment to execute this action. All the specification of the multi-agent system, from the social strategy to the actions in the environment, is made using a particular Petri Net model. The results show the strategy efficacy especially when the environment increases the necessity for a reaction.
