Emerging technologies in computing and communications now make possible the processing of large amounts of real-time information. This enables the development of computerized systems for complex applications such as dynamic vehicle dispatching in the transportation sector. Such systems are difficult to design and develop since they require the real-time processing of unexpected events that impact the system in a non-deterministic way. To face these difficulties, we consider here a reusable framework designed for such complex applications. This framework is based on a distributed architecture with components characterized by a behavior that satisfies the specific requirements of complex applications. Extensions and additional components are presented and discussed to support the design of a dynamic vehicle dispatcher.
