||An expertext system for building standards
||Casson A, Stone D
||The paper describes work on a current collaborative research project involving UK Universities and the Scottish Office's Building Directorate. Previous work by the Directorate had identified limitations in a conventional expert systems approach to the development and management of building Standards information. Work in the current project seeks to overcome these limitations by combining representational paradigms. In particular, a system is being designed and implemented which is based on and seeks to extend the concept of Headed Record Expertext (Diaper 90) in which formalised information can be attached, where appropriate, to nodes in a hypertext version of the Standards. The systemalso handles navigation rules and provides intelligent guidance for the reader through the hyperdocument. The underlying node/arc representational structure is also intended to support the capture of argumentation material generated during the development, maintenance and use ofStandardsinformation.
