Production Systems (OPS-5 family)

Production systems can be traced back to the pandemonium model of Selfridge, in which many demons observe a body of data; each responds when it sees the particular pattern in the data that it is looking for. The model is inherently highly parallel; it is intended to model the way the brain achieves intelligent and rapid responses to new information using relatively slow components.

A production system has two memories:

  1. A production memory, or long-term memory, containing the production rules.
  2. A working memory, or short-term memory, containing data about the current problem.
