An information model is outlined, which represents an intelligent system of metallographic analysis in the form of a set of subsystems, the interaction of which ensures the performance of metallographic analysis functions. The structure of the information storage subsystem for metallographic analysis is presented. The deployment model of an intelligent metallographic analysis system is proposed and described. The paper outlines the approach to the presentation of an expert subsystem for metallographic quality control of metals based on a neural network. The process of finding a close precedent in metallographic analysis with reference to a multilayer neural network is described. An intelligent metallographic analysis system is described, which based on proposed information model. A specialized software of an intelligent metallographic analysis system is presented. The functioning results of the developed system for processing images of steel microstructures to determine the steel quantitative parameters is presented.
