Results of 'plc y2k' query

Siemens Simatic system is a self-service WEB application for Siemens Industrial Control Products. In the screen shot above, "plc y2k" query returns a number of documents even though none of them contain the specified text string. The system "understands" the concepts of "y2k" and "plc" (Programmable Logic Controller) and finds documents that contain these or similar concepts. A knowledge model or a map of concepts used by the system operates as a unifying intelligent index seamlessly integrating information located in different repositories. Simatic is available on the web and on CD, as an intelligent knowledgebase.


Benefits:

Improved self service, better search precision
