The regularity is particularly important at rush time - peak hours - when an incident can provoke important delays. Experience shows that the consequences of an incident are highly dependent on the context in which the incident occurs (e.g., peak hours or not). The decisions taken by the operators are heavily relied on the incident context, and operators often make different decisions for the same incident in different contexts. The project SART (French acronym for Support system for traffic control) aims at developing an intelligent decision support system able of helping the operator in making decisions to solve an incident occurring on a line. This system relies on the notion of context. Context includes information and knowledge on the situation that do not intervene directly in the incident solving, but constrain the way in which the operator will choose a strategy at each step of the incident solving. The paper describes the SART project and highlights how Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques can contributeto knowledge acquisition and knowledge representation associated with its context of use. Particularly we discuss the notion of context and show how we use this notion to solve a real-world problem. <div style="margin:5em 0"> <a href=""> <img src="" alt="Why do you need a reservation system?" /> </a>    <a href=""> <img src="" alt="Save time & money - Smart Internet Solutions" /> </a> </div> </div> <div id="right"> <div style="text-align: right; height: 3em"> <!-- AddThis Button BEGIN --> <div class="addthis_toolbox addthis_default_style addthis_32x32_style"> <a class="addthis_button_preferred_1"></a> <a class="addthis_button_preferred_2"></a> <a class="addthis_button_preferred_3"></a> <a class="addthis_button_preferred_4"></a> <a class="addthis_button_compact"></a> <a class="addthis_counter addthis_bubble_style"></a> </div> <script type="text/javascript" src=""></script> <!-- AddThis Button END --> </div> <div class="brbroundbox"> <h2><span class="sprite-my_list">My list</span></h2> <div class="boxcontent"> <div id='my-list'></div> <div id='my-list-download' style='display:none'> <a href='/download/mylist' title='Download the list for future use'>Download the list</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="brbroundbox"> <h2>You may be interested in:</h2> <div class="boxcontent"> </div> </div> </div> <div style="clear:both;"></div> </div><br /> </div><!--page --> </div> <div id="general_footer"> © 2006-2013; © 2014-2015 </div> </div> </body> </html>
