CommonKADS is a de-facto methodology for deriving ‘knowledge’ level specifications of problem solving tasks independent of implementation language.
In CommonKADS, the hierarchical decomposition of task knowledge is represented diagrammatically using schematic maps called inference diagrams that show the sub-tasks, inferences and transfer function components of the task.
CommonKADS is expressive enough so that when specified tasks are implemented, they produce doctrinal behaviours in CGF agents.

 HPKB Support for Monitoring, Analysis, and Interpretation Tasks
Procedures for a small number of fairly abstract monitoring procedures have been codified already in the CommonKADS library of problem solving methods [1], but most of these concern fairly active procedures for diagnosing devices for which complete structural and functional information is available.
The primary body of work on process models for MAI tasks consists of the problem solving methods present in the CommonKADS library [1], which are also used in the Stanford Protege project and the ISI Expect project.
Essentially all of the important structure of MAI tasks lies outside of the extant CommonKADS assessment library, hence the attention of the proposed research to identifying and formalizing the needed extensions to this library.

 RR-2737 : Using CommonKADS to Build an Expertise Model for Breast Cancer Prognosis and Therapy
Abstract : One of the major aspects in breast cancer research is the identification of prognostic factors accurate enough to define different therapeutic decisions; each prognostic factor on its own is not sufficient for the prediction of the biological behaviour of the tumour, but a combination of these parameters is necessary.
The aim of this work is to provide a first conceptual- isation of breast cancer prognosis and therapy, while evaluating the efficacy of the Com monKADS methodology in facing the problem.

The CommonKADS methodology provides a principled approach to representing, organising and transforming acquired knowledge; in other words, it is an enabling technology to support and guide the construction of knowledge based systems.
The goal of the tutorial is to introduce the audience to a disciplined approach to developing knowledge based systems based on the CommonKADS methodology.
