The development of an architecture able to manage efficiently the different elements of the process (integrated architecture), to learn from past experience (specific experimental knowledge) and to acquire the domain knowledge (general expert knowledge) are the key problems in real-time control AI systems design. These problems increase when the process belongs to an ill-structured domain and it is composed by several complex operational units. Therefore, an integrated AI methodology which combines both kind of knowledge is proposed. This multi- paradigm reasoning provides the target system a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) with some advantages over other approaches applied to real world systems.
