Abstract

With the continuous increase in the complexity of electronic systems the issue of testing such systems is becoming an increasingly difficult task. The large number of constituent components on a printed circuit board and their internal complexity rules out traditional simulation-based techniques and emphasis upon using techniques which are based on artificial intelligence. This work is a continuation of research carried out by Arslan et al. [2] in which diagnosis is performed using example failure reports produced by Automatic Test Equipments (ATEs). The work of Arslan has also illustrated that expert system-based techniques could be used for the diagnosis procedure, however, the construction of expert systems is a lengthy procedure and their subsequent
