We propose a framework for engineering emergent behaviour that allows system specification and design at the level of the emergence. We discuss how rule migration can be used to translate this high-level multi-layer design (mobile process model) into a simple cellular automaton model with only local rules, from which the behaviour can be described as emergent. In this paper, we use a case study in 2D to illustrate the process involved in deriving a migration rule for a simple random walk. To conclude, we discuss how the mobile process architecture may be extended to model systems with multiple levels of emergence.
