As shown in Figure 5, an internally distributed cyberorg has agents located on different nodes, representing distributed parts of the cyberorg. Each part has its own local facilitator agent, which is responsible for making local decisions and receiving requests for primitive operations involving local agents. The master facilitator maintains global information of the cyberorg, and it alone is responsible for enforcing global decisions of the cyberorg by coordinating its actions with those of other (slave) facilitators.
