Abstract : This thesis was initiated as part of a continuing effort to design and implement a diagnostic expert system for the MK92 MOD 2 Fire Control System (FCS) undertaken by the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) faculty and graduate students. The focus of this thesis is the development of a structured methodology for the design and implementation of an expert system in an expert system shell utilizing a visual programming language. Guidelines for the application of the structured methodology in the Adept expert system shell were develop and these guidelines applied to the Performance module prototype of the MK92 MOD 2 FCS Maintenance Advisor Export System.
