The model-based diagnostic approach was first introduced to overcome the limitations of heuristic systems. However, research on model-based systems showed that the model-based diagnosis approaches resort to assumptions that can be viewed as the return, though controlled, of heuristics into diagnostic reasoning. In this paper we focus on diagnosis with component-oriented device models. We argue for the need to represent and reason with these assumptions. We present a conditional logic, DL, That is suitable for diagnostic reasoning and allows us to represent and reason with assumptions.
