Abstract
THE EMERGENCE OF ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE AND EXPERT SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY FROM THE LABORATORY ENVIRONMENT INTO GENERAL PRACTICE OFFERS A PROMISING APPROACH FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF MANUFACTURING APPLICATIONS. MANUFACTURING SYSTEMS BUILT WITH THIS TECHNOLOGY WILL BE PARTICULARLY VALUABLE FOR SECOND AND THIRD TIER SUBCONTRACTORS IN THE DEFENSE INDUSTRY, BECAUSE THEY WILL ALLOW THE CAPTURE AND TRANSMISSION OF CRITICAL "KNOW HOW" TECHNOLOGY FROM THE PRIME CONTRACTORS AS WELL AS PROVIDING A MEANS FOR NEUTRALIZING THE EFFECT OF THE LOSS OF CRITICAL EXPERTS IN THE SMALLER ORGANIZATIONS. IN THIS PROPOSAL, CIM SYSTEMS, INC. PROPOSES TO COMBINE ITS EXTENSIVE EXPERIENCE IN THE MANUFACTURING DOMAINS WITH THE AI/ES EXPERTISE OF THE KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS LABORATORY AT TEXAS A&M UNIVERSITY. THE MANUFACTURING ORIENTATION OF THE KBS LAB AND THE PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE AT CIM SYSTEMS, INC. INSURES THE SUCCESS OF THIS PROPOSED COLABORATION TO INVESTIGATE THE CAPTURE OF THE KNOWLEDGE BASE OF EXPERIENCE PLANNERS, AND THE INCORPORATION OF THIS KNOWLEDGE INTO AN "INTELLIGENT PLANNING ASSISTANT".
