As in many current AI (Artificial Intelligence) systems, knowledge processing is the most important issue in expert systems. 'Knowledge' in engineering applications is loosely defined and subject to interpretation. Therefore, before widespread engineering design applications can be achieved, we must formally identify knowledge types and the correlation between them. To begin this process, the paper presents various perspectives of the knowledge currently used in engineering design. It then suggests factors to consider when selecting expert system tools for engineering applications.
