Abstract : The objective is to develop a methodology for acquiring information suitable for the knowledge base of an expert system to be used in support of construction management. Construction experts have agreed to work to develop a knowledge base for construction management. The primary concern of this research is to investigate the approaches to eliciting knowledge from non-computer oriented experts. It is anticipated that knowledge bases from case studies will be produced along with a method for developing additional databases.
