A prototype manufacturing knowledge base in Syllog

by C. Fellenstein, C. O. Green, L. M. Palmer, A. Walker, D. J. Wyler
This paper describes a prototype knowledge base for manufacturing planning, which we have built using a knowledge system shell called Syllog. We describe a Tester Capacity Planning and Yield Analysis task, knowledge needed for a part of the task, and the use of the knowledge in the Syllog system. We report that the sometimes difficult process of knowledge acquisition turned out, in this case, to be straightforward. Knowledge acquisition and knowledge use are done in the same language in Syllog.
