As it is difficult to describe the mechanism of ship repair risk, common methods are less credible for its assessment. By analyzing ship repair risk, this paper identifies the causes and consequences of risk, and utilizes frame-based representation to construct the case representation for ship repair risk. In addition, similarity functions are developed for enumerated attributes, numeric attributes, and fuzzy attributes, so as to perform reasoning of repair risk from the approach of K-Nearest Neighbor. Case analysis presents that the application of case-based reasoning in ship repair risk assessment is easy to understand and extend.
