As the use of distributed system is spreading, relevant applications become more demanding. To achieve the desirable level of integration of distributed system components, experience from different knowledge domains must be combined resulting in methods and techniques of increasing complexity. Expert Systems may contribute to resolving such problems, as most distributed system designers use empirical rules (rules of thumb) which can be represented and exploited by symbolic calculus. We present and Intelligent Distributed System Design tool, which facilitates the design and evaluation of distributed systems architectures making extensive use of artificial intelligence methodologies, mainly addressing the issue of configuring distributed applications.
