Abstract

A number of industrial diagnostic systems have achieved an expert system status in that they have achieved expert-level performance. Indications are increasingly positive that these methods will scale up for large expert systems for large industrial plants A variety of general tools for building expert systems are now available, but only a few of them provide all the facilities needed for efficient development of diagnostic systems for large industrial plants. Our tool, called BEST (Blackboard-based Expert System Toolkit), aims to provide all the necessary infrastructure for diagnostic system development, including hybrid knowledge representation language to describe both structural properties (causal relations, inheritance and abstraction hierarchies) and behavioral characteris
