|Expert Systems which capture
information from the experts and provide that expertise
to everybody are an important tool for achieving
The use of expert systems allows faster solution of problems and less reliance on memory, by leading operators through appropriate check lists or procedures for exhaustive troubleshooting of problems. They provide a valuable means of trapping knowledge and making it easily available to all operating crews.
An expert system is an advantage given today's changing production environment (different people, different skills, different experiences) by being able to retain the experience and expertise of people after they retire.
The tangible benefits of the expert system for the business are:
because the correct control actions are taken in response to problems.
It also promotes a more methodical analysis of problems and more emphasis on preventing problems before they occur.
A good example of an expert system application is PRO-MOAT (Procex - Machine Operations Advisory Tool) which advises paper machine operators on runnability and quality problems.
