This paper presents a tool that enables the bottom-up design of multi-agent systems. The tool has two parts. The first part is a wrapper that wraps each agent so that it exempts the designers from the careful detailed deployment of the inter-relationships between cooperation knowledge and task knowledge inside the agent. This wrapper should be independent of the functions of agents. The second part is an environment that can support the wrapper to automate the cooperation process in behalf of agents.
