summary In a multidisciplinary design environment, such as the AEC domain, the various designers will have their own concepts and representations of the design object making communication in such an environment a complex task. This paper argues for a multiple view approach based upon an assumption that different concepts of an object are based on different functional contexts. Thus an understanding of concepts such as function, purpose and intent is critical since the representation of the functional properties of design objects is the underlying basis for the formation of different concepts and coordination of these concepts. The paper points to the modelling of multidisciplinary design teams as cooperative intelligent agents in a distributed decisionmaking system where the explicit representation of function and purpose are essential, in a CAD environment, for the necessary communication of intent and effects.
