The knowledge based system BOSS (Backtracking and Overviewing for Structural Safety) is presented. The aim of the development is to obtain an intelligent, fast tool for the surveillance of critical regions of the structure. BOSS tackles the problem of coupling symbolic and numerical programmes: both expert and traditional modules collaborate, in a uniform architecture, to accomplish the user goals. The emphasis is on an intelligent use of the external programmes linked with BOSS.
