Authors:Lowe,J; Neveen,M; Lowe,H

Presented:To appear in The International Journal of Applied Expert Systems, Volume 1(2)
Keywords:cash flow, financial control, capital expenditure, construction of buildings, knowledge level descriptions
Abstract:In this paper we propose a model capable of providing assistance to the construction client in predicting and managing project cash flow so as to keep capital expenditure within any predetermined limit or budget figure. The specific problems associated with this domain are identified in terms of knowledge level descriptions. Issues concerned with knowledge elicitation are discussed within the context of the task. A pilot study implementation of the model using an expert system shell is outlined together with the important lessons learned during the implementation. Suggestions for further work are presented.
