This paper introduces and describes a continuing programme of work initiated between Rolls-Royce plc and the University of Southampton to create a Knowledge Based System, intended to reduce the demand on currently limited specialist resource and to facilitate future business growth.
The paper begins by introducing the working context and provides an explanation of the demands faced by the business. The structure of the Knowledge Based System is given and the rationale detailed with respect to the business context. The paper argues that in order to provide value to the business, the most benefit will be seen from a lightweight system that supports user’s actions rather than introduce automation. The paper concludes with a review of the work completed to date and the proposed future work.
