Abstract: Knowledge-based systems have traditionally been developed separately. This paper outlines a three-level framework called an integrated knowledge management architecture to integrate their separate development. The paper explores the problems among organisational knowledge-based systems and proposes their integration from an organisational perspective. The ANSI/X3/SPARC database framework is utilised to develop the integrated knowledge management architecture. A prototype of the architecture is proposed with a sample knowledge base.

Keywords: expert systems; expert system shells; knowledge-based systems; KBS integration; knowledge management.
