The Landfill Design Advisor (LDA) is a knowledge-based system designed for use in the preliminary design of sanitary landfills. This paper presents the methodology and techniques that were employed for the development of the LDA. A unique feature of this experience was that knowledge was acquired from multiple expertise sources in various forms. expertise acquired from text analysis of textbooks and manuals was used in developing the core knowledge base for the basic prototype system; while those acquired from text analysis of research publications, interviews with selected domain experts and observations of landfilling works was used in the subsequent refinement and expansion of the basic prototype.
