The ABE multilevel architecture for developing intelligent systems addresses the key problems of intelligent systems engineering: large-scale applications and the reuse and integration of software components. ABE defines a virtual machine for module-oriented programming and a cooperative operating system that provides access to the capabilities of that virtual machine. On top of the virtual machine, ABE provides a number of system design and development frameworks, which embody such programming metaphors as control flow, blackboards, and dataflow. These frameworks support the construction of capabilities, including knowledge processing tools, which span a range from primitive modules to skeletal systems. Finally, applications can be built on skeletal systems. In addition, ABE supports the importation of existing software, including both conventional and knowledge processing tools
