Abstract

An account of the realisation of a multi-agent system for Inspection Qualification to the point of a working prototype is given, demonstrating its application to a practical IQ scenario. A user interface for the system is described, allowing a user to submit IQ scenarios to be operated upon by the various agents in the system, including worst case defect analysis, in an intuitive and consistent manner. In addition, an account is given of the development of a new agent within the system which uses case-based reasoning to identify existing test block trial data relevant to a given inspection qualification scenario, and reports to the user the results of the most relevant trials.
