Artificial Intelligence Exchange and Service Tie to All Test Environments (AI-ESTATE)
|Publication Date:||8 December 2010|
The AI-ESTATE standard defines formal specifications for supporting system diagnosis. These specifications support the exchange and processing of diagnostic information and the control of diagnostic processes. Diagnostic processes include, but are not limited to, testability analysis, diagnosability assessment, diagnostic reasoning, maintenance support, and diagnostic maturation.
The AI-ESTATE standard provides formal models of diagnostic information to ensure unambiguous access to an understanding of the information supporting system testing and diagnosis. The standard defines formal information models and software services specific to several different types of diagnostic reasoners.
The purpose is to provide semantically sound definitions of diagnostic knowledge and to specify software exchange and service interfaces that are consistent with the state of the practice in modern test and diagnostic systems (e.g., the use of eXtensible Markup Language [XML] and web services).
