Paper Abstract

We present the design philosophy used in constructing the AEGIS Combat System Maintenance Advisor, a rule-based expert system with over 2000 rules that was completed in less than two years. We attribute part of the success of this project to the decision to have the domain expert actively involved in the process of writing rules, and to the development of a knowledge acquisition tool that checked his work. The project was also noteworthy because it includes a compiler which retargets the knowledge base to alternate run-time environments. The techniques used in this project are general and apply to any propositional rule language for expert systems.
