    The IRA (Intelligent Repair Assistant) expert system is described. This system is used to assist mobile field technicians who are repairing circuits and having noise and transmission problems. It is shown how artificial intelligence techniques can be used by using software tools that are common to the application but not necessarily suited to artificial intelligence. It is stressed that integratin... View full abstract»
