Abstract

An expert system to assist manufacturing engineers in choosing appropriate grippers for a robotic installation is described. The expert system has a hybrid knowledge base consisting of rules, frames, objects and procedures. The knowledge employed in the selection process is outlined and the main implementation details of the expert system are presented. An example is given of a consultation session using the expert system.
