Managing Expert Systems explores the trends in expert system development and implementation over the last decade. As top authorities in the field of ES, Turban and Liebowitz examine the factors which contribute to the development of a successful expert system. The authors have found that effective management is one of the most important and often most neglected aspects of the expert system project. The design and implementation of a successful expert system requires the coordinated efforts of a project team comprised of individuals with very different professional skills. Management must be able to construct a work plan which will bring together the individual talents of knowledge engineers, experts, and information systems professionals. Effective management is essential to realizing the overall goal of a well designed expert system which will be useful to an organization for an extended period of time.|

Jay Liebowitz held the Chaired Professorship in Artificial Intelligence at the U.S. Army War College, and is also Professor of Management Science at George Washington University. He has published 18 books and over 200 journal articles, mostly in expert systems and information technology. In addition, he is the editor-in-chief of the international journal, Expert Systems With Applications and the associate editor of the international journal, Telematics and Informatics.
