Distributed Knowledge Based Systems supporting CIM Components on B-ISDN

  • Hermann Krallmann


The project “Distributed knowledge based systems supporting CIM components on B-ISDN” — called INTERBIT — is a strategic project that combines newest methodology from communications, distributed knowledge based systems and 2nd generation problem solving architectures to pave the way for innovative industrial applications of computer-integrated manufacturing (CIM). This document briefly reviews the relevant components of a real-world problem-solving-situation (PSS) in CIM their functionality, and requirements derivable from functionality and application context. Next, a strategy for the implementation of distributed problem solving architectures is presented and described. This strategy is then applied to those components of the PSS which are to be tackled in the INTERBIT project.
