Strategy-A Interface

The Strategy-A system sports an intuitive, graphical user interface, shown below, that provides the end-user access to a system integrating several key technologies in computing and material evaluation. The expert system itself is object-oriented, modular and embeds an interface to Access database. The Strategy interface comes equipped with a variety of menus, dialogs and tool bar icons to assist the user in utilizing the system effectively.

Strategy-A Interface

The focus of the Strategy-A interface is to allow the user to easily run single or simultaneous multiple consultations, provide means for storing and accessing data in the database and generate printed reports of such consultations as well as store consultations for future access. The three main modules calculate the following parameters:

* Environment Severity Factor
* Material Resistance Factor for HIC, SOHIC and SSC
* Crack Growth Factor

The different types of data the user has to input prior to obtaining a recommendation from the system. The options here are,

* Environment Data
* Material Data
* Crack Growth Data

Depending on the user's choice, the system will facilitate characterization of environment, material or crack growth data. Access to system functionality is easily provided through a tool bar shown in Figure below. The Toolbar icons allow the user to access different functionality of the menus through the Icons. Just clicking on the Icons will start a specific process otherwise available through the menus.
