1987 Space Station Automation II  
During the design cycle, and after activation of the Space Station, the reoccuring need will exist to access not only designs; but also deeper knowledge about the designs, which is only hinted in the design definition. Areas benefiting from this knowledge include training, fault management, and onboard automation. NASA's Artificial Intelligence Office at Johnson Space Center and The MITRE Corporation have conceptualized an approach for capture and storage of design knowledge. Design of NASA's
