Abstract: To construct knowledge-based systems, developers must create models of the problem-solving behavior of experts. This modeling process, termed knowledge acquisition, is laborious, and thus impedes the dissemination of expert- systems technology in all application areas, including medicine. This dissertation demonstrates ways in which computer-based tools can accelerate knowledge acquisition by aiding system builders in the creation and application of expert models.
