Abstract

A prototype of an expert system (ES) for designing various types of bottling plants is presented in this paper. ES is implemented as a production system. A bottling plant design knowledge has been represented by production rules using programming language Prolog. Interviewing has been applied as a knowledge acquisition method to extract a design knowledge from a human expert. Program, which controls the bottling plant design process and the communication between the user and the ES, was developed using Prolog. Prolog's built-in goal driven reasoning was used as an inference engine. The system was tested on several examples for bottling e.g.: mineral water, oil, juice. A comparison with the conventional design procedures was made. An ES evaluation confirms that the artificial intelligence techniques application is an
