Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSE, volume 305)


A novel approach is presented for the use of object-oriented knowledge-based systems as a framework for building computer integrated bioprocess engineering software. The features of object- oriented programming for the simulation of complex systems are demonstrated on an example of the simulation of ethanol plant using the real-time expert system shell G2.
