An expert system is developed for evaluating transportation network improvement alternatives with multicriteria. The advantages of this system are 1) integrating data, transportation models, and evaluation methods within one framework; 2) applying multicriteria evaluation methods and choice rules for these methods onto various evaluation environments; and 3) providing a friendly man‐machine interface. First, a transportation network improvement evaluation problem is specified. Then, an expert system is formulated. The relative data bases, model bases, and knowledge bases are described. Finally, a brief example is used to demonstrate the practicality of the system. The whole program is an integration of LOTUS 123, Turbo PROLOG and C language programs on an IBM personal computer.
