Knowledge, Workflow and Process Management

  • Bentley Systems, Inc.
    Application: PlantWise
    Bentley's PlantWise product is a knowledge-based application for plant concept design. PlantWise produces routed pipes, flexible reports, and exportable data files to any external plant design system. The system offers speed of routing, user changeable piping logic, and high level GUIs that greatly increase productivity. This productivity advantage is facilitated by the task-specific languages that PlantWise provides. Engineers can use the keywords and expressions familiar to them to express the logic they want to use. PlantWise is built on top of Design++.

  • KETL
    Application: Knowledge Engineering Toolkit & Language
    The Knowledge Engineering Toolkit & Language (KETL) is a representation language and inference engine being developed to support a broad range of knowledge-management tasks. The logic-based representation language provides expressive power similar to CycL, with 2nd-order syntax and 1st-order semantics. Assertions are fully represented objects. Contexts are supported for assertions (similar to Microtheories in CycL). The inference engine is relatively primitive but provides basic inference capabilities and is being extended. It currently supports transitive binary predicates (e.g., subClass), extension predicates (e.g., isa), inheritance, with emerging support for rules and prototypes, truth maintenance, and explanations.

  • KnowledgeTools International
    Application: LOGOS - Management Instruments for Complex Cases
    LOGOS creates transparency, helps to control risks, reduces legal fees and ensures quality. On the server side, the system is based on Allegro Common Lisp communicating with a MySQL database. The communication between client and server is done via HTTP. You can use LOGOS as an online service with secure transmission channels or install the server software locally on your network. In all cases, all of the users will be granted easy and remote access to the application and data. It enables individual persons or arbitrarily large teams to access a central knowledge base and to save expensive material procurement.

  • KPN Research
    Application: Portable Webpage Recommender System
    KPN Research used Lisp and Allegro CL to create a bookmark-based browser interface that could be tailored to provide recommendations of interesting web sites based on the their customers' interests and surfing patterns, yet was as easy to use as a television remote. The base technology for this product, a Recommender System, monitors user behaviour and generate recommendations of web pages for each user. This process consists of the following distinct parts: user profiling, content profiling and matching.

  • Knowledge Technologies International (KTI, formerly Concentra)
    Application: ICAD
    ICAD is an object-oriented engineering software solution for the aerospace, automotive, industrial equipment, and construction industries. KTI's customers are able to close the design technology gap by automating the concept phase of a new design project, where 80% of the project cost gets committed. By capturing the knowledge of project engineers in a Dynamic Objects modeling language, ICAD enables engineers to truly automate all repetitive tasks, build applications that capture best practices, and institutionalize routine operations to create a 'virtual product model' that can be reused for future projects.

  • Linköping University

  • Signal Insurance
    Application: SIGNAL System
    The Signal information system provides information to the customer representatives (on assets, policy offers, deadlines, etc.) and also computes premiums, drafts offers, and performs other knowledge-based tasks. Because each sales situation must be treated individually, the cost of sales can be sharply reduced with a knowledge-based information system that can help sales representatives gather personal information about the customer, and compute benefit analyses based on this and other data. Running the system on laptop computers enables the representatives to take their expert system on the road.

    Engineers responsible for designing systems can use RIVT to "define, modify, and evaluate system component designs and then integrate respective components into an overall system design," according to Dr. Suzanne Barber, Director of The Laboratory for Intelligent Processes and Systems and program lead for the RIVT project. RIVT is particularly useful in industries such as automobile, aircraft, missile design, semiconductor manufacturing, and healthcare where designing and evaluating system architectures are critical. The knowledge representation capabilities of Allegro CL were key to building the requirements-driven system design of RIVT.
