title Hierarchical Design Synthesis : The M1 System
source Pittsburgh: Engineering Design Research Center, September, 1989. 22 p. : ill. tables. includes bibliography
summary Rapid advances in semiconductor technology are motivating the development of computer-aided design tools to assist human designers at the higher levels of the design process. In particular, there is a need for tools that aid system-level design synthesis - the process of producing a detailed artifact satisfying high level specifications given a set of components. A knowledge-based approach that uses a hierarchical design synthesis methodology is described. M1 is a knowledge-based system that implements the approach for the domain of single board computer design. A set of experiments which indicate M1's capabilities and the effectiveness of the approach in organizing and utilizing knowledge are presented
