An expert system for cost estimation of Programmable Logic Controller(PLC)-based control system was developed on a PC-based platform using Kappa PC 2.3 Expert System Shell and the Microsoft Excel spreadsheet program. Knowledge from an experienced engineer, and a parts/components database are encoded in the knowledge base of a frame-based expert system shell. Design-configuration and man-days estimation are the two main processes which have been implemented in the system.
