These concepts will be discussed in more detail in the section describing KEE. 2. Expert Systems Technology 23 NEXPERT also supports links to Excel (a spreadsheet package for the Macintosh) and to programs written in C. The line of reasoning. Other windows are available to the user to aid their understanding of the line of reasoning. The transcript window monitors the session, the conclusions window keeps track of all conclusions reached, and the current hypothesis window indicates the active question under investigation.

For example, the system developer may pull down a menu containing all previous objects. Clicking on one of the objects will paste that object to the current cell being entered. This feature not only prevents typos, but also serves as a reminder of previous objects. All new or modified rules are compiled and run in real time. Without having to recompile after each change, the system developer may speedily test out new and modified rules. The most obvious advantage of NEXPERT is the graphic representation of the rule network.

Backward chaining causes GURU to identify candidate rules for a goal variable based upon their conclusions (THEN parts). GURU processes one or more of these candidate rules to establish a value for the goal variable. Forward chaining causes GURU to reason in a forward direction (from the premises of rules to their conclusions), in order to test the effect of a rule set on the value of a variable. In mixed chaining, the direction of the reasoning process can be changed dynamically. For instance, in a consultation using backward chaining, a different rule set can be consulted using forward chaining.
