A derivational approach to learning and design, based on the notion of reusing a design by “replaying” an idealized history of design goals and decisions, has been touted for the past few years as a paradigm for both software and hardware redesign. However, the limited success of this approach to date suggests that it is less straightforward than it appears. Closer study reveals some difficulties that intelligent replay mechanisms will need to address.
