Abstract:

Rome Air Development Center RADC, Command and Control Directorate CO, sponsored the 4th Annual RADC Knowledge Based Software Assistant KBSA conference held September 12-14, 1989 in Syracuse, New York. The annual conference provides a forum for exchanging technical and managerial views on the progress of the RADC program for developing a knowledge-based life cycle paradigm for large software projects, the Knowledge Based Software Assistant. The mature KBSA will provide intelligent assistance to system builders in producing quality mission-critical computer resources MCCR. Software developed using the KBSA is expected to be more responsive to changing requirements, to be more reliable, and to be more revisable than software produced using current practices. The KBSA will improve software practices by providing machine- mediated support to decision makers, formalizing the processes associated with software development and project management, and providing a corporate memory for projects. The KBSA will utilize artificial intelligence, automatic programming, knowledge-based software engineering, and software environment technology to achieve the goal of providing an integrated environment for developing MCCR systems. Keywords Artificial intelligence, Computer software, Computer systems, Automatic programming, Programming languages.
