61 Overview of Expert Advisors Expert Advisors use diagnostic software to ask the user a series of questions, and follow-up questions, to determine whether, how, and which specific parts of a standard apply to the user's activities. Based on the answers that the user gives, the Advisor determines what information the user needs to know about the standard's application to the user's activities. This process is very useful in helping the user through a very complex standard where the application of the standard is based on "decision tree” thinking. Expert Advisors are easily downloadable and, thus, allow full privacy to the user. To minimize the time needed for downloading, Expert Advisors normally do not have graphics.
