Operational Knowledge Representation for Practical Decision-Making

Pomerol, Jean-Charles, Brezillon, Patrick, and Pasquier, Laurent

ABSTRACT: For the design of an "intelligent" assistant system aimed at supporting operators' decision in subway control, we modeled operators' activity and know-how. As a result, we introduce the notion of a contextual graph, which appears as a simple solution to describe and manage operational decision-making.

Key words and phrases: context representation, contextual graphs, decision tree, knowledge representation, operational knowledge
