Zusammenfassung

Inhaltsangabe:Abstract:
In the 1980s research efforts and successes made artificial neural networks popular. Since the 1990s engineers have been using this foundation for problem solving. But artifiial neural network solutions for "real-world" problems are sometimes hard to find because of the complexity of the domain and because of the vast number of design attributes the engineer has to deal with.
This thesis provides a structured overview of attributes in the design process of artificial neural networks and reviews technical process models. Current development methods for artificial neural networks are then reviewed and critiqued. The thesis concludes with a new design and development method for artificial neural networks.
