Abstract:The model-based diagnosis project at the University of Twente has been directed at improving the practical usefulness of model-based diagnosis. In cooperation with industrial partners, the research addressed the modeling problem and the efficiency problem in model-based reasoning.

Main results of this research are that (1) re-use of electronically available descriptions of systems for diagnostic purposes is possible, and (2) efficient reasoning can be realized using PDE, hierarchic models, and a simple diagnostic strategy. We have built a prototype diagnostic system which shows the technical feasibility of model-based diagnosis in a computer system.

The project was concluded in July 1993 by the development of the `Diagnostic Toolbox¿. The Diagnostic Toolbox supports the modeling of technical systems for diagnostic purposes, and it contains several model-based reasoning methods.
