Functional models have been extensively investigated in the context of several problem-solving tasks such as device diagnosis and design. In this paper, we view problem solvers themselves as devices, and use structure-behavior-function models to represent how they work. The model representing the functioning of a problem solver explicitly speciies how the knowledge and reasoning of the problem solver result in the achievement of its goals. Then, we employ these models for performance-driven… CONTINUE READING
