Abstract : The purpose of this project was to develop and to successfully demonstrate a methodology for creating a problem solving expert system environment within which two or more expert systems, addressing different facets of a common problem, work together in synergy to solve that problem. The subject problem was taken from the power utility domain and addressed the following issues associated with power plant operations: Diagnosis and identification of imminent or actual hardware failure, planning and scheduling of maintenance and repair of failed or failing equipment, and establishing metrics of cost effectiveness and risk associated with different preventative maintenance options or scenarios.
