Abstract : This paper presents the method for the creation of an expert knowledge base of a military object, for example a radar system. Such a knowldge base can be widely used to support the process of the maintenance of a complex technical object. The first step is a maintenance evaluation of the object. During this kind of analysis, it is necessary to perform the grouping and classification of the functional elements of the object. It is realised using the functional scheme of the object presented. Further, diagnostic information is combined with specialised experts knowledge and transformed it into a set of servicing information. The participation of experts in the process of expert knowledge base preparation is significant. The purpose is to capture information that will be a fundamental for the design of a maintenance system dedicated to the particular technical object. The methods proposed were verified with appropriate examples, in which the set of specialised diagnostic information of the object was determined.
