Conference paper


The paper describes an extended rule-based expert system with the capability to invoke external programs and the the access to a set of database files. The necessity to integrate an expert system with database as well as with external programs (e. g. on-line sensor data input) has been recognized during real applications development. The particular solutions and experience even in simple MS-DOS environment are illustrated by examples.
