Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this paper, the ideas and concepts of expert systems were combined with the principles of fitness to demonstrate how an expert system could be designed to prescribe exercise routines for corporate employees. Since the examples and the rules of fitness used herein were just a small fraction of what could be used in building such a system, it would be possible to spend years developing a huge system that employs thousands of rules. However, as the supply of skilled labor continues to fall short of corporations' needs, more effort will be brought to bear on maintaining fitness in the work force. Such expert systems may be a reality in the not-too-distant future.
