    Abstract

    This paper presents recent developments in Welding Information Systems at the American Welding Institute (AWI). First, it covers the traditional data and knowledge representation and use of welding technology. Then it presents the use of advanced computer technology to rapidly retrieve and use of new welding technology. Specifically, the paper discusses applications developed by AWI in the use of 4GL data-base systems for welding data; the use of knowledge representation techniques in the development of expert systems for welding application; and the use of neural network simulators for associative memory storage and retrieval of welding-related image data. The paper presents an overview of the WIN™ system, a welding engineering workstation developed by AWI.
