title Simultaneous Form Generation and Performance Evaluation: A "Two-Way" Inference Approach
source CAAD Futures 93 [Conference Proceedings / ISBN 0-444-89922-7] (Pittsburgh / USA), 1993, pp. 161-173
summary The conventional approach toward performance evaluation transforms given design attributes into performance indicators, and designers can improve these indicators only indirectly through the manipulation of design attributes. This paper outlines a contrasting "two-way " inference approach that allows designers to also manipulate the performance indicators directly and observe the resulting changes in design attributes. The advantages of this approach and its limitations are outlined. Methodological and implementation difficulties that arise from it are introduced, and possible solution strategies are described. A first prototype for a system that implements and demonstrates this approach is outlined. The larger debate about 'functionalism " touched by this approach, and its response to it, are briefly reviewed.
