One of ihe major issues in modeling expert systems (ESs) for enhanced reusability is capturing a high-level view of iheir operations. Principled knowledge represedation schemes have b e n used io model componenis of complez software systems. However, the poteniial for applying these principled modeling techniques io ezplicitly capture the functional requiremenis of ESs has not been fully ezplored. This paper invesiigates issues and provides solutions to the use of an AI knowledge representation
