title Requirements of a Reasoning System that Supports Creative and Innovative Design Activity

summary Innovative and creative design occurs when fragments of previous design episodes are retrieved and incorporated into the present design context. This paper presents an implementable approach to innovative and creative design based on notions of prototypes and instances within a dynamic memory model of episodic memory. Innovative and creative design are defined in terms of operators. The requirements of a reasoning system to support these classes of design activity are outlined. Examples of the processes are presented
