Paper Abstract

This paper describes the work done and results achieved in implementing a fault management prototype for a Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) switching system, the GMAN (GMS Fault Management Prototype for a MAN). The GMAN is implemented using the Generic Maintenance System (GMS) which has been developed by the RACE project AIM (R1006). The GMS is a model based expert system toolset (`2nd generation XPS') comprising components for knowledge acquisition, knowledge representation, model based reasoning, human machine interface, and dialogue design. The GMS supports automatic fault management from receiving and treating fault events to guiding an operator through a repair procedure.
