RATMAN, a workbench for the definition and testing of rational agents in multi-agent environments is described. The special feature of RATMAN is the specification of such agents with hierarchical knowledge bases comprising all knowledge levels from sensoric knowledge to learning capabilities. In all levels knowledge representation languages shall be provided, which are based on logic. In addition statistical and documentational features support testing and reporting.
