    The authors discusses the computer-aided prototyping system's knowledge base and shows how to apply expert-system technology to the software base management subsystem responsible for finding reusable software components with specified properties. She uses rapid prototyping techniques to allow the detection and correlation of requirement errors early in development. The goal is to automate support ... View full abstract»

    The authors present a knowledge-based requirements assistant (KBRA) that is a component of the knowledge-based software assistant (KBSA). The idea behind KBSA is to create a knowledge-based life-cycle paradigm spanning software development from requirements to code and to formalize software practice so that computers can be used as active reasoning agents in developing software. The authors identi... View full abstract»

    The author focuses on computer support for data interpretation as an example of interactive problem-solving. She describes Config, a task representation and control system that solves the immediate interactive data interpretation problem and provides a framework for general interactive problem solving and automatic programming. To specify standard programming constructs, Config's task representati... View full abstract»

    The author introduces RPL (the relational production language) and explores the opportunities it presents for expert database systems. RPL is a language for developing expert systems that bridges the gap between expert systems and database systems. The author also introduces an expert database system architecture based on the RPL approach. Specifically, she proposes a two-level database hierarchy ... View full abstract»

    Various ways of introducing deductive capability into a database system through the use of logic are examined. The inference mechanism of Prolog and its use in deductive databases are introduced. Different approaches to designing deductive database systems according to a taxonomy are described. Examples are provided for each approach, and their limitations are discussed.<> View full abstract»
