Abstract:

Domain analysis and the development of the rapid prototype system have revealed that the implementation of an expert system is possible if some preliminary work is done to standardize the equipment and establish clear guidelines for load shedding and other decisions. This effort should be carried out even if the expert system is not implemented to ensure reliable, efficient power generation and utilization and to reduce the likelihood of costly mistakes. The contractor is convinced that the technology is valuable to the Army in terms of improved inventory handling, optimized power usage, and operator training, all leading to more effective mission completion.
