In case-based reasoning (CBR) a problem is solved by matching the
problem description to a previously solved case, using the past solution
in solving the new problem. A case-based reasoner learns after each
problem solving session by retaining relevant information from a
problem just solved, making the new experience available for future
problem solving. Crucial steps in a CBR process include finding a good
match to a new problem, adapting a previous solution to successfully
