Regarding continued growth in the use of electrical energy, it is important to meet the final customer demand. In a smart grid context, there are several ways to do this. One of means is to add energy storages and infrastructures. We are so interested in this study to the modification of electrical infrastructures. By adapting organizations, managers and their teams must have the adequate behavior and decision making to modify existing materials or add new materials into the existing system. This paper shows a company team’s behavior which operates in the field of energy supplying. The purpose of this paper is to show how teams’ managers can use a past experience, and to evaluate the impact of structure modification according to decision making using the case based reasoning. The experiments concern more precisely the quantitative aspect of exchanged messages between managers and their teams.
