Abstract
THE PROPOSED EXPERT SYSTEM FOR CIRCUIT BOARD ASSEMBLY IS AN ENGINEERING SOFTWARE TOOL WHOSE GOAL IS TO HELP AN ORGANIZATION TO OPTIMIZE THE PLACEMENT AND INSERTION SEQUENCE OF ELECTRONIC PART COMPONENTS FOR A CIRCUIT CARD ASSEMBLY USING KITTED PARTS.

BY FORMALLY ESTABLISHING DESIGN RULES AND ASSEMBLY CRITERIA, THE PROPOSED SYSTEM WILL PROVIDE AN OPTIMAL COMPONENT INSERTION SEQUENCE FOR KITTED COMPONENTS.
