Probe selection (PS) in machine diagnosis is viewed as a collection of models that apply under specific conditions. This makes it possible for three polynomial-time optimal algorithms to be developed for simplified PS models that allow different probes to have different costs. The work is compared with previous research, wherein H.A. Simon and J.B. Kadane (1975) review and develop a collection of models for optimal problem-solving search. The relationship between these models and the three newly developed algorithms for PS is explored. Two of the algorithms are unlike the ones discussed by Simon and Kadane. The third cannot be related to the problem-solving models
