Abstract : The goal of this research was to evaluate the software development process for artificial intelligence systems and postulate a software acquisition model. To accomplish this research, the major elements performed were a literature search, a case study analysis of 26 knowledge based system (KBS) development efforts, and consultation with experienced AI system developers. The results of this study are presented in a two volume report. Volume I presents observations made during the analysis of KBS software developments and provides summaries of the case study data. A comparison of the KBS development process to DOD-STD-2167 is also documented. Volume II discusses a KBS process model and customer/developer interface model. A comparison of the postulated model with DOD-STD-2167 and DOD-STD-2167A (draft) is made in terms of activities, products, reviews and baselines.
