title Analysis of Space Layout Using Attraction Force Model and Quadratic Assignment Problem
source The next city - New technologies and the future of the built environment [16th International Conference CAAD Futures 2015. Sao Paulo, July 8-10, 2015. Electronic Proceedings/ ISBN 978-85-85783-53-2] Sao Paulo, Brazil, July 8-10, 2015, pp. 247-267.
summary This paper researches the usefulness of computerized space layout programs in an actual problem of space layout of more than 50 design units of unequal sizes. This was tested with two existing space layout optimization methods, Quadratic Assignment Problem (QAP) and Attraction Force Model (AFM) as well as a satisficing method, intuitive approach. Necessary inputs for the evaluation processes, the evaluation processes and the resulting space layouts were analyzed for each approach by one designer. Their performance in the design process was criticized on subjects like preparation of inputs, situations related with multiple trials, evaluation of the resulting space layouts based on given inputs and what those space layouts represented. Generating alternatives is an advantage of computerized space layout approaches so that conditioning on the resulting space layouts decreases in the process but more research has to be done for their practicality in terms of input preparation, evaluation and transfer of outputs. Possible improvements were suggested to increase their usefulness in the professional field.
