Experience with the Common KADS WB

Technical Report:

Abstract

The purpose of this report was for the author to get acquainted with the Common KADS methodology and to elaborate a knowledge model. The author evaluated in particular the Life Cycle Model (LCM) layer of the Common KADS workbench (WB) and wrote down all the bugs, encountered while working with KADS-WB. The elaboration of the knowledge model resulted in several task decompositions, inference structures, and a project that was introduced into the WB. In chapter Common KADS is introduced, based on existing literature. In chapter two the experiences of the author with the Life Cycle Model, which is part of the WB, are outlined. In chapter three the practical use of the WB is described. In section 3.1 a summary is given of an article by the author`s supervisor J.R. Balder about experiences with KADS using reverse knowledge based systems engineering. Also Figaro, a system used by `Electricite de France` for assessing the reliability of electricity generating systems, is discussed. Figaro is an existing system that has to be reverse engineered into a Common KADS set of models. Often used concepts in this process are task decompositions and inference structures, which will be presented in section 3.2. Section 3.3 is  More>>
