This paper outlines a concept of employing intelligent agents to simulate and deploy a Smart-Shop System for retail environments. The discussion will examine the technical and conceptual challenges, main ideas and the final design rationale. The design model of the Smart-Shop System uses Multi-Agent Simulation Systems (MASS) and distributed middleware frameworks to automate a wide variety of asset monitoring and control tasks in traditional and distributed system concerns, which can be applied to similar application areas. Retail organisations containing any form of physical inventory can benefit from the proposed software solution by allowing assets to be efficiently managed and monitored. This would improve the quality of business trade and strategic marketing to sustain sales growth.
