Corporate Perspectives on Technology Transfer: The Expert-Systems Apprenticeship Program
June 1992 (vol. 7 no. 3)
pp. 6-14

The authors describe their experiences in designing, marketing, implementing, and evaluating a six-month, $1.1 million technology-transfer program called the expert-systems apprenticeship program (ESAP). ESAP had a formal classroom component to instruct eight employees in expert-system concepts, followed by an apprenticeship phase, during which the staff designed and implemented prototype systems under the guidance of experienced knowledge engineers. These prototypes were company-sponsored projects that solved real business problems. The prototypes not only demonstrated the applicability of the technology to the company's business, but also seeded the corporation with working systems to promote continued development of expert systems.
