Hydrocarbons are often used as fuels in engineering applications. An expert system for identifying hydrocarbons is useful in educating undergraduate engineering students. Three expert systems that contain essentially the same information have been developed three different ways using three expert system building tools, EXSYS, INSIGHT 2 plus and PC Plus. In this paper, a comparative study is made of the use of these tools. The identity and properties of forty hydrocarbons are embodied in the knowledge base.
