This paper presents a knowledge-based analysis of a number of multi-agent systems. The analysis is based on the knowledge level hypothesis of Newell and Clancey. We claim that the models of problem solving which we obtain constitute descriptions of global coherence in multi-agent systems. We contrast the results of this analysis with the conventional views of coherence.
