Abstract

Using the structure of a modern programming environment to organize the complex world of materials degradation and lifetime prediction offers two obvious advantages to a knowledge engineer: the first being the advanced level of development most programming environments can provide as various resources and programming facilities. The second advantage of using a functional environment at the conceptual level of a knowledge base system (KBS) project is the fast prototyping permitted by being close to the tools themselves. But the particular advantage of using an object-oriented programming (OOP) environment to effectuate the knowledge transformation is the compatibility of OOP with natural cognitive operations. Knowledge representation goes much beyond conventional data representation and
