With rapid development of the Internet, the original knowledge management systems which are centralized control can not be adaptive to the distributed environment, because there maybe more than one knowledge bases including personal knowledge base in the collaborative environment and involve knowledge in each phase of implement process. Currently, to solve the issue of knowledge management in distributed environment, we use agent and multi-agent technology and propose one distributed knowledge architecture for knowledge management system based on multi-agent. The use of Multi-Agent can increase efficiency of knowledge management and provide intelligence services in collaborative environments via Internet or Intranet. This paper performs the following tasks: (1) analysis of agent and multi-agent technology; (2) identification, analysis and classification of involved knowledge in collaborative environment or implement process; (3) architecture and characterization of distributed knowledge management system based on multi-agent; (4) introduction of knowledge sharing communication mechanism between agents; (5) conclusion and discussion of the further work.
