NoDes: kNOwledge-based modeling for detailed DESign process - from analysis to implementation
Automation in Construction 10 (4) (2001) pp. 399-416
This paper reviews the nature of detailed design process and discusses the implementation of a knowledge-based system (KBS) founded on a protocol analysis study. The main objective is to discuss the features of a knowledge-based modeling approach, kNOwledge-based modeling for detailed DESign process (NoDes). This approach was first used for the development of the , which is an interactive KBS for the synthesis of window parts. We take the as an exemplary prototype implementation to demonstrate the abilities and performance of our knowledge-based modeling approach. Besides knowledge analysis and simulation of task execution, this paper also argues the efficiency of the object-oriented programming approach in the system implementation.
