Abstract

THIS STUDY WILL BE CONCERNED WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PROTOTYPE EXPERT SYSTEM WHICH WILL ACCOMPLISH TWO MAJOR FUNCTIONS WHEN IT IS COMPLETED. THE FIRST FUNCTION WILL CONSIDER TOP LEVEL SHIP, MISSION AND OPERATIONAL REQUIREMENT TO PRODUCE A LIST OF HULL, MECHANICAL AND ELECTRICAL (HM&E) SYSTEMS AND COMBAT SYSTEMS WHICH COULD BE USED IN THE DESIGN TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS. WHERE APPROPRIATE, THE FIRST FUNCTION WILL ALSO SUGGEST THE QUANTITY OF COMPONENTS, SUCH AS THE NUMBER OF ILLUMINATORS. THE FIRST FUNCTION WILL BE IMPLEMENTED BY DEVELOPING LISTS OF GENERIC REQUIREMENTS, SYSTEMS AND RULES RELATING THE REQUIREMENTS TO THE SYSTEMS. THE SECOND MAJOR FUNCTION OF THE EXPERT SYSTEM WILL BE CONCERNED WITH USING A LIST OF SYSTEMS TO GENERATE TOTAL SHIP MEASURES OF EFFECTIVENESS (MOES) IN THE SEVEN MISSION DRIVERS (BATTLESPACE, FIREPOWER, BATTLE MANAGEMENT, SUITABILITY, SURVIVABILITY, MOBILITY AND READINESS). THE MOES WOULD BE USED IN TRADE-OFF STUDIES AND FOR COMPARISONS WITH THE MOES OF CURRENT SHIP TYPES. A COMMERCIAL EXPERT SYSTEM SHELL, POSSIBLY INSTANT-EXPERT PLUS ON THE APPLE MACINTOSH, WILL BE USED AS THE BASIS FOR DEVELOPMENT.
