Paper Abstract

Diagnostic expert systems is an area of growing interest in the application of expert system technology. Diagnosis is a step-by-step process that attempts to ascertain the internal characteristics of a physical system. The first generation of knowledge-based systems for hardware diagnosis are based primarily on the largely empirically derived knowledge of human experts. A number of diagnostic expert systems dealing with electronic and computer hardware have been developed over the last several years. The majority of these systems have utilized a variety of diagnostic techniques and concepts to solve a specific hardware application. This paper surveys four of the most successful diagnostic expert systems in the areas of computers and electronic hardware and analyzes each in a comparative manner. Several additional systems are summarized to provide the reader with a relatively extensive overview of existing research and development activities in the area of diagnostic expert systems.
