Abstract: This paper describes preliminary results using classification into an inheritance network as a general purpose method for diagnosis. The domain knowledge base is built from existing literature sources using very little time with a human domain expert. It is represented as an inheritance network of types in a theory for default reasoning using inheritance. The network is stored in an object- oriented network database and is edited with a special purpose editor which maintains consistency and aids the user in describing the types. The classification is an interactive process beginning with an incomplete description of the object to be classified. The process has three parts - placement into the type network, discrimination between possible directions and determination of pertinent information which is needed.
