Abstract:

Diagnosis is the process of identifying the cause for an observed behavior of a system. Model-based reasoning uses knowledge of the behavior of the component and the interconnection of the components to diagnose a system. This thesis investigates the application of model-based reasoning to the problem of isolating faulty components of an analog electronic circuit. More specifically, this thesis describes an architecture for a model-based diagnostic system for electronic modules, implements an assumption-based truth maintenance system one of the component parts of a model-based diagnostic system, and creates the interface between the truth maintenance system and the diagnostic system.
