In complex dynamic social environments with strong constraints and confrontation, a solidified artificial system architecture often cannot meet complex and varied service task requirements. This paper proposes an artificial system architecture adjustment method based on the multi-living agent (MLA) theroy by enhancing the administrators' management and control functions, that is, by replacing the primary multi-living agent or adding new multi-living agents. In this way, the self-organizing mechanism of the artificial system is changed and the principal and subordinate position of the opposite contradiction is changed. The livelihood degree of the system function is maintained or improved and the system function is realized. Specifically, in this paper we briefly review the MLA theory and then present the proposed artificial system architecture adjustment method. In the end, the effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by the air defense system against P2V-7 reconnaissance aircraft.
