Computer-aided knowledge-based process synthesis. Process synthesis as a branch of process development serves to structure chemical processes. Since it is largely influenced by trial-and-error knowledge, knowledge-based programming resulting from AI research (Prolog, LISP, Shells) opens up new possibilities compared to conventional procedural systems (Fortran, PL/1). The immense area of knowledge of process synthesis soon requires subdivisions into smaller knowledge domains for which expert systems first arise as island solutions, which subsequently combine as cooperating distributed expert systems. A possible procedure is illustrated for the knowledge based process synthesis program PROSYN/REXPERT PLUS.
