The knowledge-based method is a new and useful technique to build computer systems for applications which are heuristic rather than algorithmic in nature. This paper discusses how the approach can be applied to photofinishing process diagnostics. A prototype system for diagnosing Process E-6 for Kodak Ektachrome films is built to understand the knowledge structure and inferencing criteria for photofinishing process. The experience gained from building the prototype Process E-6 diagnostic system has been applied to the design of an expert system tool for building photofinishing process diagnostic systems without the direct involvement of a knowledge engineer.
