Design Guidelines for Expert Systems
Define the expert domain and the eventual environment of the implementation.
Ensure that the domain is well defined and there is a wealth of information and, more importantly, expertise.
Start at the highest programming level possible.
For derivation type problems, rule based systems (or hybrid rule based systems) offer a number of advantages.
For diagnostic problems, the EMYCIN model is particularly adaptable. Monitoring and interpretation problems can also be adapted to the EMYCIN model.
For formation problems, object oriented code (or hybrid object-oriented systems) offer some distinct advantages.
Production systems offer a number of advantages to both formation and derivation problems including modularity and portability.
