Abstract
THIS PROPOSAL PRESENTS AN APPROACH FOR ASSESSING THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AN EXPERT DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM FOR AIRCRAFT COMPLEX MAINTENANCE TASKS. THE EXPERT SYSTEM WILL EMBODY BOTH PROCEDURAL KNOWLEDGE DERIVED FROM AIR FORCE TECHNICAL ORDERS, AND EXPERTISE FROM MAINTENANCE EXPERTS ON AN AIRCRAFT. THE SYSTEM WILL ATTEMPT TO EMULATE THE CAPABILITIES OF AN EXPERT TECHNICIAN: IT WILL ASSIST LESS QUALIFIED TECHNICIANS IN THE DIAGNOSES OF AIRCRAFT MALFUNCTIONS. THISEXPERT SYSTEM WILL NOT BE A REPLACEMENT FOR THE HUMAN; IT WILL SIMPLY ACT AS HER/HIS ASSISTANT. THE SYSTEM WILL BE DESIGNED TO RESIDE IN A PORTABLE MICROCOMPUTER. THE PHASE I EFFORT WILL YIELD TWO INDEPENDENT SYSTEM DESIGNS TO THIS EXPERT SYSTEM - ONE USING LISP AND THE OTHER PROLOG. THIS WILL PROVIDE THE FOUNDATION UPON WHICH TO DEVELOP A FULL SCALE EXPERT DIAGNOSTIC SYSTEM.
