They conclude that using the knowledge-based system
in conjunction with the simulator, factory engineers were able to produce results that increased production considerably and decreased feeder slot usage.
The knowledge-based system
demonstrated a positive predictive value of 89%, compared to 77% in the conventional weaning tests and 81% from calculation of the rapid shallow breathing index, a weaning readiness predictor proposed by Yang and Tobin (23).
The hybrid fuzzy knowledge-based system
effectively optimizes a power distribution network for multiple system-performance objectives, including system loss reduction, transformer load balancing, reduction of transformer aging to decrease the failure rate and increase continuity of service, maintenance of a satisfactory voltage profile throughout the network, reactive power compensation, and conservative voltage reduction (CVR) practice to achieve peak shaving.
According to a senior manager in one of the firms, their newly-implemented knowledge-based system
had played three critical roles when one of their recruiting experts resigned to take up a more senior position with another organization.
For example, research must be conducted to study: (a) what impact will the proposed knowledge-based system
have on the decision-making processes of rehabilitation clients?
The unit of storage in a knowledge-based system
is an if/then rule, similar to a record in a date base.
After all, one would expect a book with the words knowledge base in the title to be of interest to the wider community of researchers and practitioners in the area of knowledge-based systems
BC/BS and the Institute of Information Management, Technology, and Policy at the College of Business Administration, University of South Carolina formed a joint venture to build a knowledge-based system
to automate medical review of these claims.
To make sure the past work of the company's designer-detailers remained on file and easily accessible for future details--so similar projects wouldn't have to be detailed again and again--the company also put in place a knowledge-based system
called Design++ from Design Power of Cupertino, Calif.
PSMs describe the reasoning process of a knowledge-based system
in an implementation- and domain-independent manner.
Accordingly, users of a knowledge-based system
can constrain geometry so that it follows corporate engineering practices, for example, with the practices represented as rules within the system's knowledge base.
