Using Mentor, an Expert System, to Perform Preventative Maintenance and Diagnostics on Centrifugal Chillers
MetadataShow full item record
Mentor is an expert system which was developed and introduced in 1986 assists service refrigeration techs to perform the correct preventative maintenance (PM) and diagnostics on centrifugal chillers at the right time. This expert system has undergone several upgrades and enhancements since then. This paper will discuss the human interface needs for this application, the functional characteristics of the expert system, the development environment and a case history of maintenance on a chiller.
