Paper Abstract

The difficulty and complexity of the problems and systems that are the subject of today's simulations and simulation systems continue to increase. Simulations are required to model larger 'systems of systems' to address complicated issues. Combined with the more complicated systems, simulations must also address very specific technical issues that require significant subject matter expertise. One method of addressing these additional requirements is with automated support provided by an expert system. Intelligent Systems are more flexible than conventional system. They can respond in ways that are more complex and can deliver highly tailored recommendations. The systems can provide multiple answers with different degrees of certainty and thereby manage the process or provide the simulation environment, however, is not necessarily a straightforward task. This paper discusses two approaches to integrate the C Language Integrated Production Systems as an Expert System Server. For each of the approaches, we provide the rationale, structure, features, benefits, and limitations.
