Abstract: The term “expert system” generally evokes new management techniques in various fields of activity. The definition of the expert systems in terms of their architecture reveals three basic elements: the knowledgebase containing specialized knowledge in a certain area, taken from the human expert in that field; the facts which include information related to the situation of management and data concerning a certain problem to be solved and the inference engine which is intended to exploit the set of knowledge in order to solve the problem. Examining the causes of equipment failure and malfunction is a central application field of expert systems.
