This thesis is part of a software project to develop a diagnostic expert system for the MK 92 Mod 2 fire control system (FCS) daily system operability test (DSOT). The focus of this work examines the feasibility of applying multimedia, in the form of graphics, digital video, sound, and CD-ROM technology, to the MK 92 Mod 2 Maintenance Advisor Expert System (MAES). The MAES application is intended for distribution to fleet sailors in order to increase readiness of the MK 92 Mod 2 FCS and decrease the need for outside technical assistance. The MAES application is intended for distribution to the fleet on portable computers. In its current form, the MAES includes only text-based procedures and instructions to aid the user. This study examines whether it is technically feasible to employ high-resolution images, digital video, and sound to enhance the MAES and add impact to the current text outputs. Additionally, it explores the costs associated with each media. Given that the MAES will operate on a portable computer, the study also examines the limitations a portable environment places on multimedia technologies. Finally, this study recommends specific instances of incorporating multimedia in future implementations of the MAES.
