Knowledge-Based Systems (KBS), which mimic human problem solving expertise in computerized form, have been widely used in many manufacturing processes for planning and decision-making purposes. These “expert systems” help a wide range of students be more productive by enabling them to access to the collective experience and proven techniques in their field. This paper reports the following developed systems and their implementations: • Hydraulics Circuits Design and Assembly • Soldering Process Design • Machining (i.e.: Turning, Drilling, Milling, Broaching, Shaping, Grinding) Process Design. • Bearing Selection • Hot Forging Design The elements involved in hydraulic system design are the component selectors, power and force calculator, and flow, pump, motor, and cylinder calculators. Soldering includes laser soldering and its implementation within a modular software tool created. Knowledge base of machining contains algorithms and decision tables for selecting the proper cutting tool and machining parameters. Features of a required bearing for a shaft assembly are selected via an online bearing selection tool developed by the authors. Hot forging part and process design tool
