Abstract: In this paper we report about application requirements and design principles used in the development of an integrated surveillance and control system, intended to be used by the operator of a nuclear power plant. The system, for its own nature, is an example of a class of applications normally referred to as critical applications, and involve the use of both expert system and database technologies in a real-time process control environment.
