Schevers, Hans A. J., Trinidad, Gerardo S., Crawford, John R., & Drogemuller, Robin (2006) Open Parametric Design System for Early Design Phases. In Zhuge, H. & De Roure, D. (Eds.) First International Conference on Semantics, Knowledge and Grid, 27 - 29 November 2005, Beijing, China.


This paper describes an investigation into an open framework for parametric design systems for early design phases. The framework supports the insertion of new modular parametric design components, offering new parametric design solutions. These parametric design components contain user interfaces for the insertion of new parameters. In addition, these components contain implementations for generating new design solutions. To make sure that the level of difficulty for inserting new components does not increase exponentially with the amount of components, independency of the components is investigated. To enable multiple parametric design components to work on the same design, an explicit formalisation of the objects of interest (often called an ontology) has been used. This paper describes the framework and a prototype parametric design system.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
