This tutorial chapter introduces the concepts and applications of case based reasoning (CBR) systems. The first Section briefly describes what CBR is, and when and how to use it. The second Section looks at the description and indexing of cases in CBR systems. The retrieval and adaptation processes for finding solutions are outlined in Section 1.3. Learning and maintenance of CBR, owing to the changes in domain knowledge and task environments over time, are discussed in Section 1.4. The role of soft computing in CBR is briefly described in Section 1.5. The final Section gives some examples of successful CBR applications in different areas.
