This Note describes two workshops held at The RAND Corporation in June and November 1986 in conjunction with a study conducted for the Information Science and Technology Office of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. The study was undertaken to develop criteria for evaluating and selecting tools used to build expert systems. The workshops validated and refined the authors' ideas and provided both objective and anecdotal evidence about the state of current expert system tools and expert system research.
