Computer-Aided Conceptual Design of Building Systems: Linking Design Software and Ideas Generation Techniques

Chapter

Abstract

This chapter is dedicated to the conceptual design stage in construction projects. This stage defines most of further design and even construction. Nowadays, conceptual design is the least automated and the most human-dependent part of a complex design process. It is reasonable to link modern construction design software with ideas generation techniques, in order to enhance and to automate design creativity and effectiveness. In the chapter, we propose computer-aided automation of searching for new conceptual ideas and solutions, during the early design stage of construction systems, by using such tools from the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ) as Function Modeling, Trimming, and Contradiction Analysis in Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology. For description of our approach, we consider framed buildings and provide a case study.
