Paper Abstract

The computer information system combines the features of a data base management system (DBMS), some artificial intelligent (A.I.) techniques and the computer language C into one integrated system capable of handling a variety of data and knowledge types available in the area of laser materials processing (LMP). Experimental data and general guideline data and knowledge are stored in data bases using the DBMS. Models for parameter prediction and process simulation are implemented in the computer language C. Some heuristic reasoning rules are implemented to handle the searching of general knowledge and experimental data from the data bases. A so-called "control center", which is implemented in Prolog, functions as a shell, providing an interactive user environment and guiding the user in accessing different parts of the system.
