William F. Maulsby, Eastman Kodak Company

As manufactured products become more complex, the processes to create them and the fault diagnosis of the resulting processes become more complex as well. A framework to perform computer-assisted fault diagnosis of manufacturing processes is described. A proof-of-concept system is developed and demonstrated on a polypropylene-film manufacturing plant. The proof-of-concept system consists of three subsystems: (1) the process model, (2) an assumption-based truth maintenance system (ATMS), and (3) the inference engine. The process model is constructed using a recursive ...
