A bi-directional many-sided explanation typed multi-step validation method including its implementation architecture has been proposed to diminish validation loads for busy experts. This paper presents a validation tool based on this method. This tool supports the multi-step, bi-directional validation by experts, KEs (Knowledge Engineers) and computers on the Intra/lnternet environment. Particularly this tool anonymously supports efficient validation and its process management for preventing validation delays of busy experts. Our experimental evaluation indicated that this tool could diminish experts’ validation loads to less than 20% compared to when the tool not employed.
