An `AI in Design' View of Design
Problem Description


What does the system generate as output?
Describe it in design terminology:

and in terms of representation.

Discussion. The output characterizes the goals of the design system. It also tells us how powerful the system is. A system which just computes design parameter values is probably ``weaker'' than a system which generates an entire configuration and the values for the parameters [Wielinga & Schreiber 1997]. The output representation is important if the system is an input provider for another system (for example, a graphical interface which represents the generated configurations on the screen).
