Abstract

The difficult process of designing expert systems has caused the development of many useful expert system design tools. A new tool, called MPROLOG, has been developed into an expert system tool by giving the designer the power of a programming language, PROLOG, along with a method for specifying uncertainties. Descriptions of KEE and ART, two popular expert system design tools, and MPROLOG are presented along with a description of perhaps the most important phase of expert system design: knowledge acquisition. An analysis of the implementation of an MPROLOG expert system, "the F-111 Wing Commander," throughout the knowledge acquisition and design phases is also documented. Finally, an evaluation of MPROLOG as an expert system design tool is presented.
