Platypus: A Constraint-Based Reasoning System

  title={Platypus: A Constraint-Based Reasoning System},
  author={William S. Havens and Paul Stephen Rehfuss},
Platypus is a constraint-based reasoning engine for synthesis, diagnosis and other recognition tasks. While its target applications are similar to those of many rule-based expert system shells, the architecture of the underlying reasoning engine is not. Platypus is part of our goal at Tektronix of defining an architecture for Smart Instruments, In this architecture, a model-based knowledge representation provides rules for constructing object-centered descriptions from the input data.
