The Human Plausible Reasoning is an area, which is based on possible responses and can be applied in several knowledge based systems. This paper will introduce Human Plausible Reasoning theory along with reasoning processes and rationality theory. Human Plausible Applications will be explored along with its focus on Enterprise Information System. Finally challenges in this field will be discussed and future trends in this direction will be explored.
