Abstract : Automata whose performance is dependent on specific information are referred to as expert systems. These effects and/or induce situations in the mission environment purposedly and as supported by their respective subdomains should be able and capable of evolving concurrently with and relative to an ever evolving mission environment. Information perceived from the latter may be complex, i.e., with multivariate, interrelated and dynamic patterns. The following addresses the problem of complex information management in support of autonomous expert systems within evolving environments. Emphasis is placed on the systems ability to infer generalizations, appraise the circumstantial states of the mission environment, and perform appropriate decision making. Keywords: Artificial Intelligence; Expert systems; Engineering; Planning; Decision making; Database management technology; Fuzzy theory; Category theory.
