Abstract:

Effective troubleshooting of complex equipment typically requires large amounts of equipment, documentation, and training. The considerable burden this imposes on military resources must be reduced. Computer technology offers the possibility of untiring intelligent machines which compute and advise. As Diagnostic Tutors and Expert Aids, such machines should be effective force multipliers with minimal logistics impact. What constitutes a good diagnostic aid the state of present achievability the avoidance of development failure and some future potentials are explored in this paper. Key characteristics of successful Expert Systems developments are beginning to come into focus. While the ideal diagnostic aid may rarely be achieved practical, supportable aids are beginning to emerge from various laboratories. While our intelligent machines are still infants, even kids can do amazing things.
