Brief descriptions of the Representation Independent Programming System RIPS components are presented, and preliminary assignment of Knowledge Management KW functional requirements to these components are proposed and discussed. The majority of KM functions are found to correspond closely with RIPS concepts and present definitions. Extensions to RIPS to accomodate some KM functional requirements and current RIPS concepts that extend the KM requirements are discussed and are included in a final allocation matrix, defining the functional requirements of RIPS to satisfy KM requirements. The current status of RIPS components are discussed and estimates of time to develop a KM test-bed are provided along with a proposed schedule. Facility requirements for the development are listed and estimated performance characteristics, projected from current results, are provided. The powerful KM concepts are found to be satisfied by RIPS with few extensions and, in fact, to be enhanced beyond the explicit requirements. Implementation of the concepts in a test-bed environment is found to be feasible. Author
