In a company, unexpected events may affect the planning production system. These events should be identified and analysed with the aim of evaluate their impact and make (or not) decision about the on-going production plan. This paper submits an event monitoring software application based in expert systems for planning production systems (1) to identify and describe events that generate incidences in the system (2) to define alert criteria and (3) to check periodically the production planning system to identify possible incidences.
