A Rule-Based Expert System for Industrial Training


In this paper, a rule-based expert system, named CHECKOP has been presented for industrial training to avoid potential hazards which result from incorrect operating. It also enables a range of operating scenarios for a chemical plant to be depicted by Delta 3D software. The system facilitates the input of operating sequences into the rule-based CLIPS data base. By analysing these operating sequences enables unsafe plant operation to be corrected and the consideration of preventative measures. Operating sequences can be captured and then operation instructions generated automatically.
