> Modeling, in general, is a central technique in Know-How Engineering (KHE), to collect, represent, consolidate, extend, and to apply know-how. CAEBM, like some other modeling methods in KHE, employes a very capable method of modeling, ie Parametric Modeling.
> Example-Based (EBM), Science-Based (SBM), and Rule-Based Modeling (RBM) point to three different KH-sources in modeling. While sciences are man-made, examples are the most common form of men's experiences and are able to represent any kind of KH in any area and from any source, even in dynamic processes. Rules whereas can be arbitrary and often represent given boundaries.
> Today, there is a tremendous over- developement of SBM, compared to EBM and RBM, because of the extraordinary career of sciences in history, and the extensive use of computers especially for SBM (>90%). As a result, there is a rather big chance to catch up for EBM, and even small EBM projects can make a big difference in today's KHE campaigns.
> CAEBM can help to gain some re-balancing of the use of EBM and SBM, ie the use of experience and science in today's KHE, by extending the restricted human EBM capabilities with the aid of computers, opening the chances to gain new (even scientific!) insights in nearly any problem domain.
