||An efficient indexing of past solutions is crucial to case-based design (CBD)
systems performing complex retrieval on large case-bases. This paper suggests a hybrid
approach to the indexing and retrieval of design precedents. The suggested approach
accounts for the issues of classification manifested in architectural discussions on type
and CBD literature. The indexing scheme integrates description-logic based
representation for classification and an object-based representation for precedents. The
hybrid scheme constitutes a basis for the implementation of a generic case indexing and
retrieval mechanism for SEED.
