Reasoning procedures in knowledge-based systems for economics and management

  • Louis F. Pau

Applications of AI, and especially knowledge-based systems (KBS), in economics, finance and management, result from the convergence of several streams of research, especially of decision support systems, of economic theories, and of knowledge representation and search (Fig. 1) [Pau, 1986], [Apté, 1987], [Cohen, 1981]. The first discipline offers a conceptual framework whereby to carry out structural analysis of the decision processes; the second discipline contributes by the mapping of causality relations between instruments and observables; the third discipline allows for knowledge-based or procedural search, and for information consolidation.
