Knowledge Engineering and Management
Here we examine the possibility of automating the component selection process used for configuring the Westinghouse PC 2000 industrial controller. The use of this tool will allow novice sales engineers and negotiators to configure a system without errors such as omission of expensive components or inclusion of incorrect components. In addition to the expected benefit summary and proposed system development schedule, this report contains the knowledge base representation, samples of the input and output, and sample sessions. A discussion of knowledge sharing as an acquisition tool is included as well as an illustration of what a knowledge base update session would look like.
