Abstract

Case-based reasoning (CBR) provides an effective way of overcoming problems in the diagnosis of building defects using expert systems. Although not completely easy, a non-computer programmer can successfully develop a CBR system. CBR system can explain results by linking additional information to a case. In this work, explanation is often cited as an advantage of model-based reasoning (MBR) systems and a limitation of CBR. The CBR paradigm is contrasted to that of MBR, and characteristics that make a problem domain suitable for CBR are described. The implementation of a CBR system highlighting the good and bad features of the software used is also described.
