Abstract:

This thesis analyzes the diagnostic domain and isolates the heuristics employed by experts to arrive at diagnostic solutions. These heuristic methods are then generalized in order to arrive at a series of heuristic rules that can be applied to a wide range of diagnostic processes independent of there respective domain. To test the validity of the generalized heuristics, a prototype expert system was created targeting the heuristics employed by avionics repair technicians in repair of the APS-115 radar system on the P-3C Orion.
