Better products faster: a practical guide to knowledge-based systems for manufacturers
Knowledge-based systems, including Artificial Intelligence, are both popular research topics and exciting computer technologies. They can also be powerful problem-solving tools in manufacturing and design environments. This book reveals--in layman's terms--the nature, benefits, and strategic opportunities presented by expert systems, fuzzy logic, and neural networks, three distinct but complimentary technologies.
