A Method for Evaluating Candidate Expert System Applications

James Slagle, Michael R. Wick

Abstract


We built on previous work to develop an evaluation method that can be used to select expert system applications which are most likely to be successfully implemented. Both essential and desirable features of an expert system application are discussed. Essential features are used to ensure that the application does not require technology beyond the state of the art. Desirable features help point to the applications that stand the greatest chance for successful implementation. Advice on helpful directions for evaluating candidate expert system applications is also given.
