Approaches to Diagnostic Knowledgebase Development


CaseBank_Whitepaper_Knowledgebase_Approaches_outline.jpgA diagnostic knowledgebase contains fault and repair information derived from engineering design data, technical publications and real-world field experience.

Each type of data source requires a particular or specific approach:

  • Engineering and Design Data—Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) and Built-in Tests (BITs)
  • Technical Publications—Fault Isolation Manuals (FIMs)
  • Field Experience
  • Hybrid Knowledgebases
