Experiences with knowledge-base and large database integration

This paper will discuss the integration of several knowledge-bases (network data structures providing inheritance and rule-base definition/execution) and a large database in the context of a manufacturing simulation. The simulation represents the production activities at numerous facilities and is used to determine if a production schedule can be satisfied. The simulation is supplied with data from a large relational database which includes production facility characteristics as well as piece part information. The simulation is currently in use with new functionality being incorporated at this time. This paper will also illustrate the problems inherent in loosely-coupled knowledge-base and database data exchanges. 14 refs., 5 figs.
