2) Interface Engine: it is defined as the procedures and steps to come up with an accepted solution to a problem
3) User Interface: it can be defined as the interaction between the user and the expert system
Some of the benefits of expert system are the less error rate, speed, steady results and reducing risk by eliminating the variability that occurs because of human component.
