We discuss the design and implementation of Emergency, a prototype expert damage-control-guidance system. It provides recommendations on emergency action procedures, and information on the location and use of the installed damage control systems aboard the ship to Damage Control Central personnel, who can transmit the information to the On-scene leader at the site of the emergency. This prototype system handles emergencies involving personnel injuries, fire, flooding, or fumes. A type of decision lattice control structure was used for the program. The program takes advantage of the similarities that occur during all emergencies with general procedures at the top of the lattice. At the bottom of the lattice, procedures handle the detailed requirements for the identified hazard and source. This structure allows for future additions to or revisions of the methods of combating emergencies. The program Emergency has laid some valuable groundwork for a prototype aboard a Naval ship.
