Abstract : The engineering community is presently going through a major transformation brought about by the ministurisation of computer systems. One of the important aspects of this transformation is that most of these systems deal directly with knowledge - from data manipulation to specifying recommendations. Expert Systems, a successful by-product of Artificial Intelligence, are good examples of these knowledge handling tools. Affordable hardware and software make Expert System technology really accessible to the most remote users of expertise. The fact that operative knowledge can now be transported onto diskettes and updated on-site brings a renewed flexibility to various domains of engineering. The constant drain of corporate memory and knowledge imposed by postings and transfers in DND could be minimised by capturing and storing expertise in these systems. The first Symposium/Workshops on the Applications of Expert Systems in DND was held in March 1989 at RMC and many of the participants expressed the desire to hold regular, similar meetings in the future. Since then, A Symposium/Workshop has been organised each year.
