Abstract:

FISDM is a menu driven database interface that was developed to enhance the acquisition and management of knowledge acquired for Fault Isolation System Knowledge Bases. This software was of general purpose and could be accessed on any ASCII terminal. FISDMPro enhanced the basic FISDM software by providing a Graphical User Interface GUI and Expert System to aid knowledge base creation. FISDMPro was developed with the GUI development tool TAE transportable Application Engine. The Expert system portion of FISDMPro uses the C Language Integrated Production System CLIPS expert system engine, and rules were developed that govern the creation of the major components of a FIS knowledge base. The Interface now presents a graphical method of creating the knowledge base by simply defining modules as blocks and providing interconnections between the blocks. The interconnections are governed by the physical interrelations of the modules, and the expert system generates rules relating to the interconnections. A presentation of the capabilities is shown along with the discussion of the software dynamics. Fault isolation, Graphical interface,
