The design of mosaico: an expert system for user and application requirement analysis.

ABSTRACT
This paper presents the main issues of the design of MOSAICO, an expert system for User and Application Requirement Analysis. Mosaico will help the analysts during the first phase of the design of an Information System (IS), with particular enphasis to on database. The first phase of IS design, referred as User and Application Requirement Analysis (UARA), requires experienced people to collect and organize information about the target application. The expert system MOSAICO is intended to interview the users and acquire the knowledge about the application; that knowledge will be then organized in a knowledge base, called the Target Knowledge Base (TKB). Mosaico will be initialized with the expertise necessary to gather and manage the knowledge supplied by users; this expertise is referred as metaknowledge since it is aimed to operate on knowledge about target IS. The metaknowledge is stored Meta Knowledge Base (MKB) which is organized accordingly to the Meta Knowledge Model (MKM).
