Artificial intelligence support in design: A survey [chapter]

József Váncza
1999 Integration of Process Knowledge into Design Support Systems  
The paper argues the point that thanks to a recent shift of emphasis from logic based to autonomous, rational and interactive models of intelligent behaviour, artificial intelligence can now support engineering design better than ever before. Logic, however, provides still the best means for representing design objects and knowledge about them. Design synthesis, especially if executed in a concurrent setting, can build upon agent technology. Finally, the evolutionary approach to design is discussed.
