Abstract: We report on several experimental systems intended to provide such assistance. One system intended to provide direct design advice is described in more detail. It was developed by including additional analysis algorithms and adding rules to an existing knowledge based expert system design advisor intended to provide critiques of the design of plastic parts to be produced from injection molding.
