Summary:
The subject of this thesis is the design and implement at ion of an expert system from a standard data base management software language. The advantages and limitations of such a system design are discussed and supported by an accompanying implementation. Both, the design and implementation, demonstrate what gives the expertise or personification of human reasoning to a machine and why this type of reasoning is well suited to certain types of problems. This fundamental departure from traditional deterministic analytical problem solving is accomplished by developing a system that is heuristic in nature. This heuristic implementation provides for a system that assists in the development of an emerging solution, rather than a deterministic solution in and of itself (i.e., a system that is programmed with a set of meta-knowledge rules that governs the decision making process and acts upon a second set of knowledge rules).
