||Obstacles to the development of computable models of design standards
||Kiliccotel H, Garrett J H Jr
||Design standards play a significant role in civil engineering. Evaluating a designfor conformance using such a large number of design standards is a tedious, laborious, and difficult task. One major research issue in CAE (Computer-Aided Engineering) is to develop software systems to assist in the usage of the design standards in the design process. Many obstaclesto the development of such a tool exist; the major obstacles are: design standards are not self sufficient documents; design standards are indeterminate; processing design standards requiresnon-monotonic reasoning; and design standards contain higher4rder provisions. An approachto dealing with these obstacles is proposed that treats standards processors as distributed blackbox abstractions able to communicate using a standardized protocol.
