NO programmer alive today has more extensive subject matter knowledge regarding avionics than an avionics engineer
I worked for a large British plane maker (that will remain nameless but you can probably guess) for 7 years. I worked in Flight Test Data Processing working on jet fighters so you would think I know a lot about flight engineering and avionics. I didn't. I worked with a couple (and occasionally more) aviation engineers to develop an expert system to analyse flight tests - however, the engineers specified the formulas, constants and other criteria that I used. I was an aeroplane nut at the time - getting my pilot's licence - but I still didn't know what half the stuff was. I was still able to build the test analysis framework very successfully (it was still in use 17 years after I left the company) so that these engineers could specify want they wanted without any "intelligence or subject knowledge" built into the program at all. It's not always needed to develop an expert system - as long as you have a couple of actual experts guiding you along!
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
