Abstract : During the year, progress was made in a number of directions: A better understanding of different types of problem solving that underlie expert reasoning was obtained; Advances in representing design knowledge as plans in design specialists were made. CRSL, the language for diagnostic expert system building that was designed in the author's laboratory, was applied to the implementation of a diagnostic system for the fuel system of an automobile and directions for new constructs for the language were obtained; A representation for functional understanding of how a device works was obtained, and methods of automatically generating diagnostic expert systems from this representation of a device were also obtained; and An analysis of how techniques and tasks can be matched in expert design was undertaken.
