Use of case-based reasoning in the domain of building regulations [chapter]

Soon-Ae Yang, Dave Robertson, John Lee
1995 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In developing a system which can assist domain experts in interpreting the regulations, this trend has presented us with di culties in employing this traditional approach and has led us to a uni ed case-based  ...  In this paper, we rst describe the characteristics of the regulations and the activities involved in this domain. Second, we explain the reason why we abandoned the traditional approach.  ...  Acknowledgements We would like to thank the Scottish O ce for allowing us to use appeal cases. Any views expressed in the paper about the building regulations are those of the authors alone.  ...

Towards an Ontology-enabled Approach for Modeling the Process of Conformity Checking in Construction

Anastasiya Yurchyshyna, Catherine Faron-Zucker, Nhan Le Thanh, Alain Zarli
2008 International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering  
The queries annotations also help to guide the information/knowledge extraction and reasoning process and explain the results of the validation process, especially in case of failure.  ...  The reasoning is modeled by the matching of RDF representations of construction projects to SPARQL conformity queries.  ...  In case of such incomplete representations, it is useful to precise the lacking elements (the sub patterns of the query which can not be matched), so that a user could know the reason of non-verifiability  ...

An Approach for Discovering Traceability Links between Regulatory Documents and Source Code Through User-Interface Labels [article]

Antoine Mischler, Martin Monperrus (INRIA Lille - Nord Europe)
2014 arXiv   pre-print
We evaluate our approach in the domain of green building. The evaluation involves a domain expert, lead architect of a commercial product within this area.  ...  In application domains that are regulated, software vendors must maintain traceability links between the regulatory items and the code base implementing them.  ...  We have evaluated our approach using a commercial system that implements a European regulation in the domain of green building. A domain expert has assessed 1000+ recovered traceability links.  ...

A Generalized Adaptive Framework (GAF) for Automating Code Compliance Checking

2019 Buildings  
The current approaches for conducting the design review process in an automatic or semi-automatic manner are either based on proprietary, domain-specific or hard-coded rule-based mechanisms.  ...  These methods may be effective in their specific applications, but they have the downsides of being costly to maintain, inflexible to modify, and lack a generalized framework of rules and regulations modeling  ...  and reason about building regulations and provisions based on the neutral data format.  ...

Software Certification: Is There a Case against Safety Cases? [chapter]

Alan Wassyng, Tom Maibaum, Mark Lawford, Hans Bherer
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Prior to their use in software certification, safety cases were already in use in domains like aviation, military applications, and the nuclear industry.  ...  In particular, the safety case approach lacks the highly prescriptive and domain specific nature that can be seen in other engineering specialities, in terms of engineering and analysis methods to be applied  ...  Early gains in improving safety cases could be made by removing the guesswork in using process based standards and actually reverse engineering the implicit safety case behind the use of the standard.  ...
