Developing expert systems: a knowledge engineer's handbook for rules & objects
This logical and integrated approach to implementation of expert systems shows how an expert system is conceived and built using commercially available ES Shells. Taking a single coherent example, it follows the implementation team from initial evaluation of a problem through knowledge engineering steps and implementation tricks to the completion of a deliverable system. The book follows the team as they grapple with management problems, design issues, and delivery/validation. Theoretical material is introduced in the order of design problems faced by the team, providing a clear framework for all topics discussed. As the project progresses, increasingly sophisticated techniques are introduced and illustrated in detail.
