Expert Systems in Accounting

Expert Systems in Accounting, by Alex Edwards and N.A.D. Connell, Prentice Hall, Prentice Hall Building, Englewood Cliffs, NJ 07632, $54.80.

This informative volume investigates the accountant's relationship with decision support software, in particular with expert systems. The accountant's role within the information technology environment and the likely impact of expert systems on the accounting profession are described, and the case for and against future development of expert systems is examined. All the stages of constructing an expert system are described and illustrated with a real life case study. The authors present the results of multinational surveys of expert systems use in the UK, USA and Canada. This is a valuable reference for professional accountants who wish to develop their own expert systems, for data processing and information systems managers in accounting firms and for students of accounting.
