    A description is given of the Seteli system, which combines technical knowledge about network structure with managers' subjective assessments. Managers can examine how the network would evolve subject to different assumptions regarding demand and subscriber preferences. The nature of the telecommunication planning problem in Finland (where Seteli was developed) is described. The development of Set... View full abstract»

    The Expert LAN Designer (ELAND) is described. It is a rule-based expert system for configuring distributed information systems operating on a LAN. A general overview of the system and the motivations for major design choices is presented, and the modules comprising ELAND's inference engine are explained. An example session with ELAND is provided.<> View full abstract»

    Abduction, defined as the stating and entertaining of a hypothesis, is addressed. The Red system for blood antibody identification, which comprises the authors' primary domain for research into abductive problem solving, is described. How viewing it and other abductive systems in terms of the goals is aiding in understanding abduction in general and allows experimentation with abduction techniques... View full abstract»

    A method that employs a machine learning technique for the semiautomatic generation of protocol-conformance test-sequence requirements is described. Given a protocol knowledge representation and some high-level nonexecutable descriptions of protocol behavior, a learning algorithm based on extended explanation-based generalization produces conformance test-sequence requirements for a protocol imple...

    The allocation of freight cars is addressed. On the basis of the observation that the problem involves strategic knowledge much more than linear programming (in that distributors currently use reasoning to find solutions), an allocation system centered on an expert system that reproduces distributors' reasoning was developed. The system is described, and operations research and expert system appro... View full abstract»
