A Model-Based Expert System For Component-Level Fault Diagnosis

This paper summarizes research completed for the development of a prototype expert system to diagnose failures of a complex computer down to an individual component. Our research goal was to model the diagnostic process followed by expert technicians to achieve a component-level diagnosis. The development goal was to construct an initial prototype system for a single board of the computer which could be used as a model for the construction of a diagnostic system for the entire computer.
