Abstract : Increasing problems in the complexity of military systems, fault diagnostics, and maintenance training are affecting the readiness of the military services. Expert Systems, a discipline of Artificial Intelligence, appears to offer solutions to many of these problems. However, some problems do exist in present Expert Systems. This paper addresses a different approach to the applications of Expert Systems to logistics in the development of a Maintenance and Diagnostics Information System (MDIS). The MDIS is a multi-domain knowledge acquisition system that supports integrated diagnostics, maintenance, training, data collection and data analysis. Use of systems like these provide each recruit with a computerized expert to aid in the diagnosis and maintenance of system faults.
