MethoDex: A methodology for Expert Systems development
A framework that can help users, experts and data processing personnel to be effectively involved in the development of Expert Systems is proposed and discussed. The approach taken is to evaluate the two most basic approaches used in industry today, namely, the usage of a standard methodology (SDLC) which is also used for the development of general business systems, and the well-known Knowledge Engineering Cycle approach. The proposed methodology for Expert Systems development (MethoDex) is designed to consist of a three-layered framework: activities, procedures and resources. MethoDex has been developed within a life assurance industry environment (Liberty Life Association of Africa Limited) and has already proved itself as a valuable framework for the successful development of Expert Systems within a commercial environment.
