Expert systems are being developed commercially to solve nontraditional problems in such areas as auditing, fault diagnosis, and computer configuration. As expert systems move out from research laboratories to commercial production environments, establishing reliability and robustness have taken on increasing importance [1, 5, 9, 20, 21]. In this article, we would like to assess the comparative effectiveness of testing methods including black-box, white-box, consistency, and completeness testing methods [9, 15-19, 22, 23] in detecting faults.
