The design of the user-interface for knowledge-based systems (KBS) has received far less attention than the other components of these systems. KBS developers have always tended to concentrate more on the inner workings of the systems resulting in systems which are fully functional in terms of satisfying their primary objective. However, these systems are often devoid of the flexibility, ease of use and efficiency in deployment necessary in user-oriented systems. This paper examines the considerations which need to be taken into account in the design of appropriate and effective user-interfaces for knowledge-based systems.
