Abstract: The General Motors Variation-Reduction Adviser: Deployment Issues for an AI Application
The General Motors Variation-Reduction Adviser is a knowledge system built on case-based reasoning
principles that is currently in use in over a dozen General Motors Assembly Centers.
This paper reviews the overall characteristics of the system and then focuses on various
AI elements critical to support its deployment to a production system. A key AI enabler is
ontology-guided search using domain-specific ontologies.
This paper won an award at the
innovative Applications of Arificial Intelligence in 2004 and was highlighted
in the Emerging Trends for AI for the Media - AI News Bulletin Fall 2004.
A slightly updated version was also published in the AI Magazine.
