Artificial Intelligence: The Nine Phases of the Expert System Development Lifecycle (ESDLC)

  1. 1. The Nine Phases of the Expert System Development Lifecycle (ESDLC)
  2. 2. Problem Identification Knowledge Acquisition Feasibility Study Project Planning Operation, Evaluation, & Maintenance Installation, Transition & Training Verification & Validation Knowledge Implementation Knowledge Representation Figure 1: Expert System Development Life Cycle (ESDLC)
  3. 3. Nine Phases of ESDLC Problem Identification Phase: Identifying the problem and opportunity where the organization can obtain benefits from an ES, and establishing the ES general goals Feasibility Study Phase: Assessing the feasibility of the ES development in terms of its technical, economical, and operational feasibility.
  4. 4. Nine Phases of ESDLC Project Planning Phase: Planning for the ES project, including development team members, working environment, project schedule, and budget. Knowledge Acquisition Phase: Extracting domain knowledge from domain experts and determining the system’s requirements.
  5. 5. Nine Phases of ESDLC • Knowledge Representation Phase: Representing key concepts from the domain, and interrelationships between these concepts, using formal representation methods. • Knowledge Implementation Phase: Coding the formalized knowledge into a working prototype.
  6. 6. Nine Phases of ESDLC Verification and Validation: Verifying and validating a working prototype against the system’s requirement, and revising it as necessary according to domain experts’ feedback. Installation/Transition/Training: Installing the final prototype in an operating environment, training the users, and developing documentation/user’s manual. – Operation/Evaluation/Maintenance Running the system in an operating environment, evaluating its performance and benefits, and maintaining the system.
  7. 7. Nine Phases of ESDLC Verification and Validation: Verifying and validating a working prototype against the system’s requirement, and revising it as necessary according to domain experts’ feedback. Installation/Transition/Training: Installing the final prototype in an operating environment, training the users, and developing documentation/user’s manual. – Operation/Evaluation/Maintenance Running the system in an operating environment, evaluating its performance and benefits, and maintaining the system.
