Southwest Research Institute and the U.S. Air Force Materiel Command designed and developed an automated system for the preparation of deficiency report analysis information reports (DRAIRs). A DRAIR provides Air Force engineers with an analysis of an aircraft item's performance history, including maintenance, supply, and cost. A DRAIR also recommends improvements for a deficient materiel or aircraft part. The successful design, development, and deployment of the DRAIR ADVISER system by applying a combination of knowledge-based system and database management techniques are the subject of this article.
