Knowledge-Based Configuration- Survey and Future Directions [chapter]

Andreas Günter, Christian Kühn
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In addition to the general definition in [Tong 92] under engineering design, the project of "physical artifacts or physical processes of various kinds" is identified.  ...  In so far as a clear allocation is seldom possible, several graduations can be introduced between the routine design and the creative design.  ...  The skeleton plans allow compositional relations to be represented, for example the has-parts-relations in the PLAKON-System [Cunis et al. 91] or in KONWERK [Günter 95a ].  ...

Modeling Strucutre and Behaviour for Knowledge Based Software Configuration

Christian Kühn
2000 Planen und Konfigurieren  
There are several approaches to knowledge-based configuration, which are successfully applied in technical domains.  ...  Nevertheless they appear not to be sufficient for configuring software-based systems, as they primarily proceed in a structurebased manner, but do not take the system's behavior into account.  ...  for the control of problem solution. • Constraint-based approach: Representing restrictions between objects or their properties, resp. by constraints and evaluating these by constraint propagation.  ...

Christian Kühn
2001 Planen und Konfigurieren  
Während bestehende Methoden zum wissensbasierten Konfigurieren in erster Linie auf Wissen über strukturelle Zusammenhänge basieren, kann es von Vorteil sein, auch Wissen über das Verhalten der Konfigurationsobjekte  ...  Das vorliegende Papier zeigt Möglichkeiten auf, wie Ansätze zum regel-, struktur-, constraint-, ressourcen-und fallbasierten Konfigurieren so erweitert werden können, dass vorliegendes Verhaltenswissen  ...  in den Systemen PLAKON [3] , KONWERK [8] , [9] und EngCon [1] sowie die bedingte Propagation in ConBaCon (s.

KANDIS-a tool for construction of mixed analog/digital systems

P. Oehler, G. Grimm, K. Waldschmidt
Proceedings of EURO-DAC. European Design Automation Conference  
The main idea is the succesive construction on functional and algorithmic blocks with di erent kinds of tools and the permanent exchange of resource limitations with constraint propagation.  ...  Resource limitations are handled in PLAKON with constraint nets. For the delay constraints we use a simple timing model on system level.  ...  PLAKON on system level.  ...

Sales Configurator Information Systems Design Theory

Juha Tiihonen, Tomi Männistö, Alexander Felfernig
2014 International Configuration Workshop  
ISDT is the primary output of Design Science research that "shows the principles inherent in the design of an IS artifact that accomplishes some end, based on knowledge of both IT and human behavior".  ...  Generalizing from the novel principles of our earlier work applied in the construction of a sales configuration system called WeCoTin, we present the Sales Configurator Information Systems Design Theory  ...  We also express our gratitude to companies that have offered us access in the context of earlier research that this work is based on.  ...

What makes the Difference? Basic Characteristics of Configuration

Lothar Hotz
2013 International Configuration Workshop  
This approach emphasizes the synthesis aspect of configuration, which continuously acquires requirements and computes their effects on a configuration in a cyclic way.  ...  This approach is similar to the one defined in the following, however, we do not map the generative notion to a certain reasoning technology (such as constraints in [Stumptner et al., 1998] ), but we  ...  Configuration tools which follow our approach are KON-WERK [Günter and Hotz, 1999] , engcon [Hollmann et al., 2000] , or Plakon [Cunis et al., 1989] .  ...

Artificial intelligence methods in process plant layout

1989 Proceedings of the second international conference on Industrial and engineering applications of artificial intelligence and expert systems - IEA/AIE '89  
They instilled the desire to learn in me which ultimately led to this research. This is an excellent time to thank them for all they have done for me throughout the years.  ...  PLAKON can also operate in its local relaxation mode. In this, constraints are organised into so-called "constraint bundles" .  ...  The most usual technique is that due to Marcus [1986] , exemplified more recently in PLAKON [Syska 1988 ].PLAKON implements two strategies for arbitrating contradictions amongst constraints.  ...

A classification and constraint-based framework for configuration

1998 Artificial intelligence for engineering design, analysis and manufacturing  
We expose how we have integrated taxonomic reasoning in the constraint programming schema.  ...  One of the main difficulties with configuration problem solving lies in the representation of the domain knowledge because many different aspects, such as taxonomy, topology, constraints, resource balancing  ...  which defines relations between objects as consist-of and contains relations, and PLAKON~Cunis et al., 1989! which defines constraints on objects.  ...

Joining Constraint Satisfaction Problems and Configurable CAD Product Models: A Step-by-Step Implementation Guide

Paul Christoph Gembarski
2022 Algorithms  
Among others, the formulation of constraint satisfaction problems (CSP) is state of the art and the informational background in many proprietary configuration engine software packages.  ...  In configuration design, the task is to compose a system out of a set of predefined, modu-lar building blocks assembled by defined interfaces.  ...  Existing workbooks usually are related to expert system shells from the 1990s, e.g., PLAKON [21, 22] or the above-mentioned proprietary software packages.  ...

Design Automation Case Study: Trash Rack Cleaner [article]

Paul Christoph Gembarski, Leibniz Universität Hannover Institut Für Produktentwicklung Und Gerätebau, University, My
The basis for the system is a knowledge-based engineering system which uses spreadsheet, constraint and macro technology to create a fully detailed CAD model of the trash rack cleaner.  ...  Related to this are design automation systems that aim at automating the design process in order to mimic human designers and assist them in routine design activities.  ...  In the beginning of the 1990ies, XRAY, a configurator for x-ray systems, was implemented based on the PLAKON expert system shell which used constraint satisfaction techniques as knowledge model [13] .  ...
