Intelligent design tools as product model interfaces

Abstract: Concurrent engineering is understood as a methodology that can be used to increase quality and reduce design effort and time-to-market of a product. Main aspects of concurrent engineering are information sharing among multiple design agents and problem solving actions. Associated techniques are product models and intelligent design tools. In the paper the interrelationship of product modelling technology and intelligent design support is reviewed. A practical contribution to concurrent engineering by using design tools as intelligent interfaces to product models has been done by the authors. The paper describes the concept and prototypic implementation of two knowledge-based design tools in the domain of structural design. The tools form integrated parts of a design environment linked via a central product model.

A methodology for cognitive architectures for design tools in civil engineering

Abstract: Developments of knowledge-based tools for design support in building and civil engineering still remain isolated approaches without a strong methodological basis. The impact of Artificial Intelligence technology on the engineering practice is still relatively low, because research and development efforts are often abandoned on a early prototype stage. The approach described in our paper aims at the systematic study, development and ap- plication of Al technology in building design to obtain a methodology for an enumerable set of architectures attached to specific problem categories in building design. We illustrate the methodological framework with a set of selected case examples.

Information retrieval - a concept of an engineering database server for prefabricated elements

Abstract: A concept for an engineering database server for retrieving information on the use of prefabricated elements will be discussed. The methods for the re-use of design solutions stored in this structural library are based on database technologies for a client-server architecture and advanced concepts of object-oriented modelling techniques. The objective is to optimise the cognitive effort in the early design stage by actively supporting the choice and adaptation of a structural solution depending on the constraints of the design situation. Because of the great number of prefabricated concrete slab floors used in construction we have chosen this very promising domain to demonstrate our model.
