The Manufacturing Intelligence Award is an annual award presented jointly by the British Computer Society, Specialist Group on Expert Systems and the Department of Trade and Industry. Its purpose is to demonstrate that the technology of knowledge-based systems has now matured to a point where it can help manufacturers improve productivity and hence their competitive position. The Award is for the best application in the general area of knowledge based systems to manufacturing technology, manufacturing management and materials technology, and is open to any UK registered industrial company. The winners are selected on the basis of documented cost savings, regular usage, benefit to the company, achievement relative to the size of the company and lessons for the rest of UK manufacturing. The 1990 award went to Wiggins Teape Research and Development Limited, with IBM United Kingdom Limited taking the second prize. Certificates of merit were awarded to British Steel Technical and Intelligent Applications Ltd and Permabond Division of National Starch and Chemical Limited and Mr P.J.Selby.
