summary This paper presents a research concerning the theme of the support didactic tools for a maintenance oriented design. The work takes a starting point in two remarks: the first is the importance of maintainability requirements prevision for the correct planning of a project and for the formulation of maintenance strategies; the second is the lack of information (examples, references, laws, quality and performance plans) easily available for students and designers. The tool thas has been pointed out has the aim to provide the information - belonging to different categories of knowledge - useful for a maintainability conscious design, according the free navigation modalities tipical of hypertextual applications. Starting from a matrix that associates building subsistems and maintainability requirements the student has the possibility to navigate into a network in which it is possible to have information about: european laws concerning maintenance, examples (drawings, pictures and description) of architectures and of industrial components that regard particular maintainability solutions and a plan in which are schematized the appropriate dimensions and the morfological configurations for the maintenance activities. This hypertextual didactic tool has two different educational applications: 1) during design training courses, it can support in self-training about maintenance aspects; 2) it can become a specialistic module inside an integrated CAAD system developed to combine the graphic representation with different performances evalutions.
