Using tools that support the knowledge-engineering process can be challenging. Developers often make modeling mistakes that could have been avoided with hindsight. Design-critiquing systems can assist the developer by highlighting potential problems with modeling decisions, and with the use of knowledge-engineering tools. Naturally, automated systems cannot detect all potential problems, but they help developers avoid many common mistakes, and they improve the quality of the target knowledge-based system.
