Constructing software for new domains or extending existing software for newproblems is often too high and it is frequently cited as a major impediment to broad dissemination of information technology. The EXPECT project is addressing that problem by developing a knowledge acquisition framework that empowers users and domain experts, such as biologists or military officers, to augment, modify and adapt knowledge based systems without needing to understand the details of the system's implementation. The key to EXPECT's approach is that it captures the design rationale for knowledge based systems, and uses that design knowledge to guide a user in augmenting the system.
