The aim of the research project was the drafting of an expert system for the development of planning in coal mining. By means of such a system, the operation plan drafted by the engineers is to be assessed from strata mechanical and support technical viewpoints, errors and weak points are to be identified, and, if possible, measures for remedial action are intended to be proposed.

When carrying out the project and developing the prototype (with new methods of software engineering and the powerful development tool SMART ELEMENTS), it was found that an expert system allows substantial improvement of strata mechanical planning, however, the aim not only to support an experienced planning engineer, but indeed to replace him, can only be reached (if at all) with high expenditure. .
