Verification of knowledge bases is an important aspect of the development procedure of rulebased expert systems. The objective of verification is to assure producing a successful intelligent computer system that reaches correct recommendations. This research introduces an attributerule dependency matrix verification method and its associated Java implementation program. The method can help knowledge engineers and domain experts in the automated verification process of rulebased knowledge bases for both consistency and completeness. The method can also help in the documentation of expert systems' facts and IfThen rules. A wide variety of knowledge bases has been successfully debugged and analyzed using the introduced verification method.
