This paper describes an application of a CBR System in a factory, which manufactures Fused Cast ( Electro Cast) Refractory blocks used as lining for Glass Melting Furnace Tanks. The attributes, which are associated with the manufacturing process, are captured in the shop floor. The CBR system enables the users and the experts to correlate the dependence of the success and failure of these blocks to these attributes, if any. The CBR System allows users to query about a block to be manufactured, whether a similar block was manufactured earlier or not, whether it was a success or not. If not a success earlier, what are the corrections and pre-cautions to be taken? In this manner rejections are reduced.
