As the importance of Distributed Systems is rapidly increasing and relevant applications become more demanding, optimal design of Distributed Systems becomes a critical issue. Distributed System design is not a trivial task, since various parameters influencing the overall performance of the system have to be considered. For the successful integration of Distributed System components knowledge from different areas must be combined leading to increasing complexity. In this paper is presented the recent research work undertaken by the authors towards the development of an intelligent tool for designing Distributed Systems. Methodologies from the Artificial Intelligent domain are integrated within our research framework in order to propose alternatives solutions for the Distributed System architecture.
