Design theory for CAD: proceedings of the IFIP WG 5.2 Working Conference on Design Theory for CAD, Tokyo, Japan, 1-3 October, 1985, Volume 1985
Since the process of design is determined by the amount and type of knowledge available to the designer, it may be treated as a problem of information processing. This book aims at establishing a paradigm of design theory through scientific discussion - essential to the continued development of computer-aided design. The contributions are drawn from many fields of technology: mechanical, electrical, architectural, naval architectural, and computer software. This broad base allows an accurate presentation of the state-of-the-art in the research and development of intelligent CAD, and an assessment of practical problems such as the selection of CAD tools. The conclusions drawn will be of importance to those involved in both basic and applied research, and in design.
