Engineering practice can sometimes be abstracted to a set of rules suitable for a computer program. Such a program, known as an expert system, quickly applies the rules to a given situation so as to arrive at an expert conclusion. An expert system has two distinct parts: the knowledge base and the inference engine (computer program). The ways to develop an expert system and their application are discussed. The example of an expert system for diagnosing pump-startup faults is given.
