The aim of this paper is to design a decision support system that allows the causes of casting defects to be determined. A prototype system is developed through a rigorous development methodology and illustrates a style of development that attempts to ensure system maintainability, correctness, consistency of deduction and promotes quality software. The system allows casting parameters to be set and illustrates diagnostic reasoning of casting faults made.
