    Guidelines for scoping manpower requirements of rule-based and frame-based expert systems are provided. An evolutionary methodology is presented that allows the estimation structure to increase as problem complexity increases. It is in the form of a six-month formula that enables organizations to get started in expert systems with minimal risk. The first project month is spent picking an expert sy... View full abstract»
