Intelligent Advisory Tool for Design Decomposition
In this chapter, the design search problem of finding a finite sequence of production rules that begins with initial specifications and ends with an acceptable solution (as introduced in Chapter 6), is represented by an AND/OR search tree. A design search algorithm, which is based on a set of production rules and the AND/OR tree representation, is used to search for a consistent (i.e., physically realizable) design solution. A prototype system that was developed to implement the framework is discussed.
