Interacting with the CADET system

CADET consists of sub-systems that we call CARD (Case-based Retrieval for Design). This system is being refurbished and is non-operational at this time.

Extensions to CADET with an enhanced device model has been implemented in the WATT system. This system integrates model-based reasoning and case-based reasoning.
