Paper Abstract

Proposing specific computer systems to meet customer requirements expressed at a very high level is an iterative process. Performance prediction rules are used to generate intermediate configurations based on highly abstract inputs. These intermediate configurations are then used interactively to further define the requirements. Conclusions reached based on incomplete information are denied and new information is input in the system. This paper describes an expert system under development which uses an Extended Contradiction Resolution Mechanism based on a Truth Maintenance System (TMS) to implement this interactive computer configuration generation process.
