Conference paper


The cognitive tasks involved in diagnostic expert systems have been studied for a while. Some general rules have recently been proposed by Clancey (Clancey 84), to model these processes. It thus seems that derivation tasks (Amarel 78) are well on the way to be solved at the conceptual and practical level.
