Abstract:

The screening of potential new financial service products is a problem domain which fits the criteria for using Expert System technology. The INNOVATOR implementation was performed in the ESE Expert Systems Environment Shell, an IBM product. ESE is designed to run on IBM mainframes a 4381 in this case. ESE allows developers to enter rules directly in an IF...Then format. It also allowed external routines to store and retrieve the Attribute states of the product being considered, although this was in a flat file format. The Purpose and Objective of this project was to build a new version of INNOVATOR, taking advantage of the direct database access I was expected to deliver a working, expandable ESE application which implemented the Knowledge Base of the INNOVATOR application without resort to external third generation language calls and with suitable modifications to take advantage of lessons learned in implementing the first INNOVATOR and implement good database design.
