    The computer-based support of conceptual and procedural reasoning and of data manipulation is the central theme of this paper. The human conceptual mode of reasoning is supported by a computer-based thesaurus of concepts, and the procedural mode by a hierarchically organised set of specialists operated on by an inference engine. Support for data manipulation is provided by giving the user access t... View full abstract»

    As the deployment of expert systems has spread into more complex and sophisticated environments, so inherent technological limitations have been observed. As a technique for overcoming this complexity barrier, researchers have started to build systems composed of multiple co-operating components. These systems fall into two distinct categories; those that solve a particular problem, such as speech... View full abstract»

  • Device modelling environment: an interactive environment for modelling device behaviour

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):115 - 145

    Describes a system called the device modelling environment (DME), which helps the user to analyse the behaviour of the device being designed. Given a description of the device design, the DME formulates a behaviour model of the device, analyses its behaviour through simulation, and provides an explanation of the behaviour. The DME can model both continuous and discontinuous physical phenomena. Whe... View full abstract»

  • Two laws of design

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):146 - 156

    One of the major aims of design theory is to construct explanatory models that further enhance understanding of design as a cognitive act. The search for such models raises the question as to whether there are, in fact, laws of design that are valid across the 'sciences of the artificial'. This paper, presents two such qualitative laws. The ideas embedded in these laws have long been part of the '... View full abstract»

  • Analysis and synthesis of an intelligent control system based on fuzzy logic and the PID principle

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):157 - 171
    Cited by:  Papers (4)

    The analysis and design of an intelligent control system, based on the fuzzy set theory and the well known PID control principle, are carried out. The structures of fuzzy PID controllers are built up utilising expert heuristics to perform PID control actions. The properties of such controllers are investigated in terms of their nonlinear equivalence, stability analysis and robustness examination. ... View full abstract»

  • Automated design of machining fixtures: tolerance and sequential operations

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):172 - 184

    The long lead time for jig and fixture design is a serious bottle-neck in modern manufacturing. Efforts to automate the fixture design process using intelligent CAD systems have not been taken beyond the prototype stage, mainly because of impediments which include the requirement of complex data structures to represent the workpiece and its attributes. Two deficiencies in existing systems for fixt... View full abstract»
