    Technology and organizational behavior issues that are barriers to the commercial success of expert systems are discussed. The issues include interfacing and integrating with existing systems, picking the correct problem, fulfilling development goals, representing knowledge, acquiring knowledge, validating and maintaining the system, deploying and introducing expert systems in an organization, and...

    The different tasks and types of language generation systems are discussed. There are four types of generation systems: canned-text, template, phrase-based, and feature-based systems. Canned text is the simplest way of producing output and is used in the vast majority of software. Templates, the next level of sophistication, are used when a single message must be produced multiple times with sligh... View full abstract»

    Critic engineering advances a theory of errors and repair strategies that helps a system collaborate with an expert during knowledge acquisition. The result is an expert critiquing system, or critic, designed to improve the collected knowledge. An implementable version of the critic-engineering methodology that includes first principles, generic question sets, and a library of error triggers and c... View full abstract»

    Constrained heuristic search techniques are applied to the problems of product configuration and inventory planning. The architecture of Coral, an interactive, real-time decision support system that maximizes the total number of products requested, given one or more substitutable configurations, is presented. Coral gives inventory managers a tool for managing and allocating component inventories, ... View full abstract»

    The design of a visual identification expert system (VIDES) that uses a visual approach to help identify microfossils down to the species level is discussed. VIDES combines a graphical expert-system shell with a set of knowledge bases to help identify microfossils, reducing the time and cost associated with petroleum exploration. VIDES's initial knowledge-acquisition procedure, automated knowledge... View full abstract»

    A problem-solving architecture that addresses the entire life cycle of composite-materials fabrication from a generic-task viewpoint is presented. Prototype systems that capture the experience-based static design of fabrication plans and the progress-control knowledge of cavity tuning for the microwave curing of composites are described. The capturing of compiled process planning in the plan desig... View full abstract»
