Abstract: We present an intuitive automated method for diagnosing and repairing decision-theoretic models interactively, and we describe the role of this method in our broader framework for building expert systems that choose among alternatives. Although previous approaches to modeling choices in expert systems generally have sacrificed formal specification for transparent operation, our approach suggests that knowledge engineers can retain the benefits of a formal foundation without compromising intuitive explanation and knowledge acquisition.
