Abstract

Measurement techniques for evaluation and quality assurance of expert systems R. McNaughton, D. Patel Centre for Information and Office Systems, School of Computing, Information Systems and Mathematics, South Bank University, Borough Road, London SE1 OAA, UK ABSTRACT Expert Systems are becoming more and more commonly used in commercial and safety-critical applications, but so far have not been encompassed by the trend for formal methods of software quality assurance. This paper presents possibilities for modelling an expert system rulebase, which is identified as an important component of the system which cannot be measured using existing techniques or models. INTRODUCTION Software Quality Assurance takes several forms. Well-established standards such as BS5750 [4] require the use of certain procedures to impose order on the design process, and documentation to demonstrate, to the user and to others involved in the production of the software, that these procedures have been used
