The concept of expert as agent is introduced in this paper. The expert resides in an object-oriented environment that models a problem domain, and has access to particular rules sets, which can infer expert level knowledge about the domain. The purpose of the expert as agent is to enhance the usability of resulting knowledge systems, and to promote technology transfer. A prototype developed in the domain of aeronautical engineering is used to present the ideas outlined in the paper.
