Artificial Intelligence in Design

Computers have been employed for some time in engineering design mainly as numerical or graphical tools to assist analysis and draughting. The advent of the technology of artificial intelligence and expert systems has enabled computers to be applied to less deterministic design tasks which require symbolic manipulation and reasoning, instead of only routine number processing. This book presents recent examples of such applications, focusing on mechanical and manufacturing design. The term 'design' is interpreted here in its wider sense to include creative activities such as planning. The book covers a wide spectrum of design operations ranging from component and product design through to process, tooling and systems design. Its aim is to expose researchers, engineers and engineering designers to several developments in the emerging field of intelligent CAD and to alert them of the possibilites and opportunities in this exciting field.

Artificial Intelligence in Engineering Design

Artificial Intelligence in Engineering Design, Volume II: Models of Innovative Design, Reasoning About Physical Systems, and Reasoning About Geometry focuses on the processes, programs, techniques, and technologies involved in the employment of artificial intelligence in engineering design. The selection first takes a look at the automated reuse of design plans in BOGART and ARGO, an analogical reasoning system for solving design problems. Topics include analogy mechanisms in ARGO, analogical reasoning and learning, ARGO development environment, using VEXED to construct a design plan, and how BOGART reuses a design plan. The text then ponders on retrieval strategies in a case-based design system and case-based design, including the functions-to-structure design task in the domain of physical devices, design retrieval, proposition, and modification, and the multi-layered case representation. The publication examines mechanism comparison and classification for design; a case-based approach to the design of mechanical linkages; and studies of heuristic knowledge-based approaches for automated configuration generation and innovation. Topics include applications of stress field estimation to geometric optimization, simplification and abstraction operators, mechanism comparison and classification, linkage synthesis, analytic synthesis techniques, and system architecture. The selection is a valuable reference for readers interested in the use of artificial intelligence in engineering design.

Artificial Intelligence in Design    98

The development of computational models of design founded on the artificial intelligenceparadigm has provided an impetus for muchofcurrentdesign research. As artificial intelligence has matured and developed new approaches so the impact ofthese new approaches on design research has been felt. This can be seen in the wayconcepts from cognitive science has found theirway into artificial intelligence and hence into design research. And, also in the way in which agent-based systems arebeingincorporated into design systems. In design research there is an increasing blurring between notions drawn from artificial intelligence and those drawn from cognitive science. Whereas a number of years ago the focus was largely on applying artificial intelligence to designing as an activity, thus treating designing as a form ofproblem solving, today we are seeing a much wider variety ofconceptions of the role of artificial intelligence in helping to model and comprehend designing as a process. Thus, we see papers in this volume which have as their focus the development or implementationofframeworks for artificial intelligence in design - attempting to determine a unique locus for these ideas. We see papers which attempt to find foundations for the development of tools based on the artificial intelligence paradigm; often the foundations come from cognitive studiesofhuman designers.

Artificial Intelligence in Structural Engineering

Artificial Intelligence in Structural Engineering

This book presents the state of the art of artificial intelligence techniques applied to structural engineering. The 28 revised full papers by leading scientists were solicited for presentation at a meeting held in Ascona, Switzerland, in July 1998. The recent advances in information technology, in particular decreasing hardware cost, Internet communication, faster computation, increased bandwidth, etc., allow for the application of new AI techniques to structural engineering. The papers presented deal with new aspects of information technology support for the design, analysis, monitoring, control and diagnosis of various structural engineering systems.

Engineering Design

Contrary to popular mythology, the designs of favorable products and successful systems do not appear suddenly, or magically. This second edition of Engineering Design demonstrates that symbolic representation and related problem-solving methods, offer significant opportunities to clarify and articulate concepts of design to lay a better framework for design research and design education. Artificial Intelligence (AI) provides a substantial body of material concerned with understanding and modeling cognitive processes. This book adopts the vocabulary and a paradigm of AI to enhance the presentation and explanation of design. It includes concepts from AI because of their explanatory power and their utility as possible ingredients of practical design activity. This second edition has been enriched by the inclusion of recent work on design reasoning, computational design, AI in design, and design cognition, with pointers to a wide cross section of the current literature.

Integrated Intelligent Systems for Engineering Design

This book aims to describe recent findings and emerging techniques that use intelligent systems (particularly integrated and hybrid paradigms) in engineering design, and examples of applications. The goal is to take a snapshot of progress relating to research into systems for supporting design and to disseminate the way in which recent developments in integrated, knowledge-intensive, and computational AI techniques can improve and enhance such support. The selected articles provide an integrated, holistic perspective on this complex set of challenges and provide rigorous research results. The focus of this publication is on the integrated intelligent methodologies, frameworks and systems for supporting engineering design activities. The subject pushes the boundaries of the traditional topic of engineering design into new areas. The book is of interest to researchers, graduate students and practicing engineers involved in engineering design and applications using integrated intelligent techniques. In addition, managers and others can use it to obtain an overview of the subject, and gain a view about the applicability of this technology to their business. As AI and intelligent systems technologies are fast evolving, the editors hope that this book can serve as a useful insight to the readers on the state-of-the-art applications and developments of such techniques at the time of compilation.

They represent the state-of-the-art and the cutting edge of research and development in this field. They are of particular interest to researchers, developers and users of computer systems in design. This volume demonstrates both the breadth and depth of artificial intelligence in design and points the way forward for our understanding of design as a process and for the development of computer-based tools to aiddesigners.

Artificial Intelligence in Design    96

Change is one of the most significant parameters in our society. Designers are amongst the primary change agents for any society. As a consequence design is an important research topic in engineering and architecture and related disciplines, since design is not only a means of change but is also one of the keystones to economic competitiveness and the fundamental precursor to manufacturing. The development of computational models founded on the artificial intelligence paradigm has provided an impetus for much of current design research -both computational and cognitive. These forms of design research have only been carried out in the last decade or so and in the temporal sense they are still immature. Notwithstanding this immaturity, noticeable advances have been made both in extending our understanding of design and in developing tools based on that understanding. Whilst many researchers in the field of artificial intelligence in design utilise ideas about how humans design as one source of concepts there is normally no attempt to model human designers. Rather the results of the research presented in this volume demonstrate approaches to increasing our understanding of design as a process.
