Value-driven expert systems for decision support

Journal Article

Values are an inherent part of all decision processes. Hence, values are at least implicity included in all expert systems intended for decision support. This paper outlines the concepts and methodology, which are based on the principles and procedures of decision analysis, to address explicity the values in an expert system logically and consistently. Implementation of the concepts and methodology involves the elicitation of values using the same general approach as that used by knowledge engineers to explicate expert knowledge. © 1988.
