Reliability has become a key factor in KBS development. For this reason, it has been suggested that verification and validation (V&V) should become an integrated part of activities throughout the whole KBS development cycle. In this paper, it will be illustrated how the PROLOGA workbench integrates V&V aspects into its modelling environment, such that these techniques can be of assistance in the process of knowledge acquisition and representation. To this end, verification has to be performed incrementally and can no longer be delayed until after the system has been completed. It will be shown how this objective can be realised through an approach that uses the decision table formalism as a modelling instrument.
