The main objective of this paper is to describe how Dempster-Shafer’s (DS) theory of belief functions fits in the framework of valuation-based systems (VBS). Since VBS serve as a framework for managing un-certainty in expert systems, this facilitates the use of DS belief-function theory in expert systems.
