An `AI in Design' View of Design
System Evaluation


Is the system implemented and operational?

Discussion. Some systems are developed only to the level of generic architectures for specific types of design problems. Other systems reach the level of implementation, but are experimented with on restricted problems only. These types of systems are often used as benchmarks for automated design techniques. Finally, some of the design systems are tested and refined for industrial applications. They are supposed to be able to tackle design problems in their entire complexity and to be available to various users.
