Expert Systems for Price Analysis: A Feasibility Study,
OHIO STATE UNIV COLUMBUS
The feasibility of alternative designs for an expert price analysis computer system is evaluated by analyzing the price analysis task, and the related support requirements, as performed by Air Force procurement activities. Generally, the Air Force should embark on a coordinated, long-range program of providing adequate expert system support to all procurement functions. Initially, this support can best be provided by a highly structured, interactive expert system which confronts the system user with requisite decision sequences. Each sequence points to a tutorial network which provides explanation and instruction if desired. The most immediate benefit will be experienced at the base level where little expert assistance is currently available. This type of expert system provides the nucleus for developing more sophisticated expert systems for other procurement activities in the intermediate and long term. Author
