Abstract

This paper describes the application of case-based reasoning (CBR) to provide decision support for the NDT engineer during Inspection Qualification. A key element of this process is to present experimental evidence on the effectiveness of the inspection. A prototype for the system has been developed using a case-base which describes the defect, the probe and response. This paper discusses the motivation for the system, the case structure, weightings, similarity measures, retrieval techniques and its design and implementation.
