    This survey presents a number of issues raised by the application of case-based reasoning for design. The authors comment on the two extremes of case-based design: design assistance and design automation, and how they share a number of difficult issues related to their implementation View full abstract»

    A product design process begins with functional or conceptual design, followed by basic design and detailed design. Among these, functional design plays the central role in ensuring design quality and product innovativeness. Because function is the most crucial concept in designing better and more innovative products, functional reasoning technology is indispensable to the development of future ad... View full abstract»

    Configuration design spans many problem types that require varying types of knowledge and problem-solving methods. This article investigates the different types of knowledge that are active in configuration design and identifies some of the applicable problem-solving methods. The result is not a full theory of configuration design, but we make some steps in that direction. To clarify configuration... View full abstract»

    Knowledge based design integrates a broad range of highly specialized knowledge from expert sources to synthesize or refine a design. Knowledge-based design systems automate at least some of these knowledge sources. However, the constant evolution of standards, technologies, and a dynamic marketplace demands a high degree of adaptability in both design expertise and in the process of applying that...

    Design can be regarded as the process of transforming an initial set of requirements (and possibly an initial design) into an explicit, complete specification of an object that satisfies those requirements. The designer's task involves repeated cycles of considering an existing partial design, comparing it with the design goal, deciding on a transformation to get closer to the goal, and then apply...

    What do agent researchers dream of? The answer is simple-building a general-purpose, robotic agent that works and communicates with human beings in natural settings. Although this goal remains elusive, researchers have made real progress in two important areas: defining clear avenues for advance as they reframe the issues involved in building agents; and the advent of mobile robots with manipulato...

    The paper considers how software is undergoing a fundamental change. A new more efficient kind of Internet-ready software is pre-empting traditional shrink-wrapped software. Consequently the software industry is quickly shifting from a product industry to a service industry. This transformation will make all aspects of software more efficient and is therefore inevitable. We have already seen hints... View full abstract»

    To maintain a balanced perspective on a power station's output, managers and operations engineers must be able to determine the contractual consequences of their decisions and events. To assist these users, we've designed a modular decision-support knowledge-based system that lets them generate what-if scenarios of events that could affect contractual compliance. They can also access a hypermedia ... View full abstract»
