This paper deals with minimizing aircraft electrical system weight. Because of technological advances that are spreading, electrical system of aircraft is more complex to design and requires new way to be conceived in order to reduce its weight. This paper describes how to optimize weight of harnesses thanks to the Adaptive Multi-Agent System approach. This approach is based on agent cooperation which makes global function of system emerge. Communication between agents is the focus of this approach. We will develop this approach and apply it to the weight optimisation problem. The developed software provides results that are either equivalent or better than those of classical approaches. Moreover, this software may be a precious help to engineer in charge of designing harnesses as it enables to make different tests in a quasi-real time.
