28. ESADI: A Knowledge Based Advisory System Shell
Investigator(s): Andrew Kispal and Max Bramer

This project is concerned with developing a KBS shell for building advisory systems. The shell is based on the model developed during the Safety Advisor for the Demolition Industry (SADI) project. It outlines the main characteristics of the domain of demolition advice and describes the model of knowledge based advice giving that was developed to accommodate these characteristics. The paper includes discussion of the knowledge structures used and the shells interface, together with a description of a set of tools that were developed to help with building an application using the shell.
