We investigate methods for tuning numeric parameters in Nynex MAX, a telephone trouble screening expert system. Steepest descent, hillclimbing, and simulated annealing parameter adjustment strategies are applied to the problems of maximizing classification accuracy and minimizing misclassification cost. For both of those optimization problems we evaluate each algorithm''s ability to tune initial parameters for several situations
