||Computer aided quality evaluation of dwellings
||The evolution of computer related technologies allows for the construction of increasingly complexapplications. On the other hand, the house building industry calls for an organised approach to qualityassurance, which should be based on an integrated view of the dwelling life cycle: design, construction, useand, eventually, demolition. A framework for the evaluation of the quality of dwelling designs, named QDF(Quality Dwelling Framework), has been developed, focused on the evaluation of the quality of dwellingdesigns. In order to experiment with QDF, a computer prototype has been implemented, following theobject-oriented approach to software development. The work is progressing in the line of extending QDFto support the need for computer aided evaluation of the quality of dwellings, after construction. Therelevance of the object oriented approach in modelling complex products like buildings, also adopted inProduct Modelling, is briefly referred to.
