Abstract
THIS PROJECT WILL DEMONSTRATE HOW CURRENT DEVELOPMENTS FOR RAM APPLICATIONS FOR THE POWER PLANT INDUSTRY CAN BE ADAPTED TO ALSO INCLUDE THE NEEDS OF THE UNIFIED LIFE CYCLE ENGINEERING PROGRAM INITIATED BY THE AIR FORCE. A RECENTLY DEVELOPED USER-FRIENDLY WORKSTATION SOFTWARE ENVIRONMENT IS BEING USED AS THE STARTING POINT. THIS SOFTWARE IS CURRENTLY BEING AUGMENTED BY ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) TECHNIQUES IN TWO MAJOR AREAS TO FURTHER EXPAND THE BOUNDARY OF USER-FRIENDLINESS FOR RAM ANALYSIS: A) A MENU-BASED NATURAL LANGUAGE APPROACH TO SIMPLIFY THE ACCESS TO DISTRIBUTED AND HETEROGENOUS DATA BASES AND B) AN EXPERT SYSTEM TO PERFORM CONSISTENCY CHECKING AND MODELING TRANSFORMATIONS TO INCORPORATE EXPERIENTIAL KNOWLEDGE INVOLVED IN RAM ANALYSIS.
