Production Systems

Production Systems
   The Production System Methodology Is Clearly Powerful
   [T]he interest in production systems on the part of those building high performance knowledge-based systems is more than a coincidence. It is suggested that this is a result of current research (re)discovering what has been learned by naturally intelligent systems through evolutionthat structuring knowledge in a production system format is an effective approach to the organisation, retrieval and use of very large amounts of knowledge.
   The success of some production rule-based AI systems does give weight to this argument, and the production system methodology is clearly powerful. But whether this is a result of its equivalence to human cognitive processes, and whether this implies artificially intelligent systems ought to be similarly structured, are, we feel, still open questions. (Davis & King, 1977, p. 307)
