Paper Abstract

When a human expert performs laboratory measurements, he uses a number of evaluation and decision making techniques that are not usually included in automated measurement systems. These include method selection, method discovery and heuristic evaluation of data and results. This paper describes a preliminary Expert Measurement System that adds these expert thought processes to conventional automated measurements. This Expert Measurement System is the Material Characterization Expert System (MCES). It measures physical properties of materials by the use of ultrasonic waves. Its performance is close to that of a human expert and it operates much more quickly.
