Abstract:

The MK 92 MOD 2 Fire Control System FCS is a fast reaction, lightweight, low manned, high performance multi-function fire control system that gives a ship all the combat functions required for independent tactical operation. The MK 92 MOD 2 FCS Maintenance Advisor Expert System MAES was proposed to assist Fire Control technicians in the troubleshooting of this complex fire control system. This thesis addresses the development of a fully functional prototype expert system that provides troubleshooting expertise for performance parameter deficiencies noted in the Daily System Operability Test DSOT. Specific issues covered include scope of the project, project background, the expert system development life cycle, hardware and software selection, knowledge acquisition, knowledge representation, knowledge implementation and lessons learned in the process.
