title Chunking Structural Design Knowledge as Prototypes
source Amsterdam: CMP, 1988. pp. 3-21. includes a short bibliography
summary The concept of a prototype as a conceptual schema for the representation of generalized design knowledge is proposed. A formal definition of prototypes is presented independent of their implementation. The paper elaborates this concept and demonstrates its applicability through an example in the domain of structural design. The example of prototype knowledge is presented for the design of rigid frames and the process of designing using prototypes is described. The advantages of this approach are presented
