Abstract

RESCU (Real-time Expert System Club of Users) is the first of the community clubs set up to promote advanced information technology within the U.K. It consists of 23 industrial companies and 3 universities interested in the application of knowledge-based system (KBS) techniques to real-time process control. The main objective of the club is to increase awareness of KBS technology and to demonstrate the viability of these techniques on a practical real-time application. The authors describe the RESCU demonstrator project, intended to study the possibility of assisting operators with quality control in a chemical batch process plant. The project was developed as a demonstration of the expert system approach and to gain practical experience with an operational expert system. Some aspects of the knowledge acquisition undertaken for the expert system are covered. The basic structure of the knowledge base is described, and some features within it are discussed. Problems encountered during the project are highlighted.
