The knowledge engineer must select a programming language, and with the help of the expert, represent the basic concepts and relationships within the language's framework.
Unlike shells, tools are more flexible (but less focused), and provide knowledge engineers with a rapid prototyping environment in which they can build shells or specific expert systems.
As more business-related expert systems are built, knowledge engineers will become better able to communicate.
Demand is also growing for knowledge engineers, who can work closely between the programmer and the user to design expert systems.
The training situation for knowledge engineers is similar to that for systems analysts a decade ago.
Knowledge engineers are somewhat similar to systems analysts.
This feature allowed the knowledge engineer to modify rules, observe the effect on individual decisions and trace logic by switching among built-in windows.
The knowledge engineers created "soft" rules, each triggered by the presence of a different risk factor.
Communication can be especially difficult due to the technical jargon of both the domain experts (the people whose expertise is to be modeled) and the knowledge engineers.
