Knowledge based expert systems (KBESs) have been increasingly recognized as an effective tool for solving many problems in the construction industry. When developing a KBES for a specific construction problem, it is important to understand the range of available techniques for KBES development and select the most appropriate one for the problem. This paper discusses five widely used KBES development techniques in terms of their strengths and limitations. Potential application areas for each technique are recommended. Guidelines for selecting a development technique are presented.
