In this paper, potential synthesis cases in distributed expert systems (DESs) and types of DESs are identified. Based on these results, necessary conditions of synthesis strategies in different synthesis cases and two methodologies to solve the problem of synthesis of solutions in DESs are proposed. A computational strategy by using analysis methods and a neural network strategy which is an example of inductive methods are introduced in detail for solving synthesis problems in conflict synthesis cases. Both methodologies are evaluated and compared.
