This paper describes the development of a knowledge-based system to assist Southern California Edison (SCE) in the design of electric service facilities for residential developments. The system supports SCE planners both by performing spatial reasoning in support of the design task and by performing more routine parts of the design. The paper also outlines the technical issues underlying how this knowledge-based designer's assistant is being integrated into the CADD environment currently being used throughout the SCE grid.
