Putting Knowledge-Based Concepts to Work for Mechanical Design

Ian C. Campbell, Kris J. Luczynski, and Steve K. Hood / 157

Cames (computer-aided mechanical expert system) is a tool for automatically designing material-handling equipment used in pulp and paper mills. Operational since 1988, it has designed over 700 machines in a total of 5 classes and, consequently, has influenced our principles for deploying all knowledge-based systems. Because it is being extended to other machines within our group of companies, it is becoming more closely integrated with other knowledge-based and conventional systems.
