Expert Systems have gained considerable momentum in the past few years. Though many systems have been built in various disciplines, the process of Expert System development is not clearly defined. However, it is possible to define a general framework. Expert System building can be classified into the following five steps: (1) problem definition, (2) conceptualization, (3) implementation, (4) user interface and (5) learning. p]In this work, an Expert System for industrial facilities layout planning is developed, from the context of the above five steps. The layout problem is treated as a multi-objective situation and is solved via the Expert System. This paper discusses in depth the development of the Expert System.
