In spite of the rising demands for reusable information systems, current designs are still insufficient in providing efficient reusable mechanisms for system design. One of the major problems hindering the development of information reuse in most traditional systems, which include component-based systems and object-oriented systems, is the lack of the self-organising ability among the system components or subsystems. The emergence of intelligent agent-based technology is able to solve the problems plaguing many traditional systems. In this paper we introduce an optimised design for agent-based systems, which is able to provide an efficient process for agent capability reuse. An experimental program is developed to evaluate the performance of the proposed design.
