In this article, we provide an overview of the case adaptation process. We classify various existing case adaptation methods available in the literature. We consider three different aspects, namely, domain knowledge requirement, adaptive capabilities of the case adaptation methods, and the kind of adaptation knowledge required. We then derive certain findings about the nature of the case adaptation methods and their applicability in real-life tasks. • Partial matching is built into the

In other words, rule-based systems are more rigid in providing the exact solution whereas case-based systems are more flexible in providing an approximate solution.
