Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) is the process of solving new problems based on the solution of similar past problems. In the present paper we introduce an absorbing Markov chain on the main steps of the CBR process. In this way we succeed in obtaining the probabilities for the above process to be in a certain step at a certain phase of the solution of the corresponding problem, and a measure for the efficiency of a CBR system. Examples are also given to illustrate our results.
