Paper Abstract

An expert system has been written in the Prolog language which enables a non-expert user to specify the method of manufacture and visual appearance of small decorated cakes. The expert system has been designed to be ergonomically acceptable to non-expert users. It formulates the inspection procedures necessary by relating the method of manufacture to the appearance of a product, and from this the image processing operations are generated in the form of a Prolog+ program. Such a method enables the system to inspect new and varied products without sacrificing the complexity and robustness of inspection.
